Mud (Clark Guy)

Now down by the creek where the water goes slow The green-backed heron and the moccasin know All things come to him who waits Yet he is lost who hesitates Life and death just dancin' 'round in the mud Well, The light comes down through the limbs and the leaves And dapples the water between the reeds The air tastes green, the bank gets soft Right about then your shoes come off You got to get it between your toes, the mud Mud pie, mud in your eye Mud on a snake bite don't you die Take a little rain, take a little dirt Make a little mud get it on your shirt Now when I die please bury me down by this old muddy creek Let the crawfish have their way It's mud to mud and that's okay We all just crawled out of the mud Mud pie, mud in your eye Mud on a snake bite don't you die Take a little rain, take a little dirt Make a little mud get it on your shirt Mud pie, mud in your eye Mud on a snake bite don't you die Take a little rain, take a little dirt Make a little mud get it on your shirt Now, we're all just sloggin' through the mud
