Idabel Blues (Stoney LaRue)

Runnin' hard and runnin' fast Tryin' to get away Goin' to the bayou Where no one knows my name No one knows my name Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Well, I had a job real good pay Watching summer's crops Made a hundred bucks a day Guardin' those green tops Guardin' those green tops Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave August night up real high Rifle in my hand Whiskey drinks, forty winks They cleared my buddy's land Cleared my buddy's land Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Well I spent my time in Idabel Just tryin' to get ahead Friends I've known all my life Are wishin' I was dead Wishin' I was dead Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Running hard, runnin' fast Tryin' to get away Goin' to the bayou Where no one knows my name No one knows my name Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave Won't you hide me Pa 'Fore the Red River is my grave Is my grave
