Darlin' Corey:Big John Khat And The 
Highland Blues Band.(1961.)
(The traditional is in Key of D..But I like BJK's
 version in A..so, please don't send me e-mails.)

Wake up, wake up, darling Corey..
               G        A
what makes you sleep so sound?
The revenue officers are coming..
              A         G           A
they're gonna tear your still-house down.

Well, the first time I seen darling Corey..
                       G            A
she was sitting by the banks of the sea.
Had a .44 strapped around her body..
      A           G            A
and a five-string banjo on her knee.

Go away, go away, darling Corey.
             G         A
Quit hanging around my bed.
Your liquor has ruined my body..
       A     G          A
pretty women gone to my head.

Dig a hole, dig a hole, in the meadow.
                  G         A
Dig a hole in the cold damp ground.
Dig a hole, dig a hole, in the meadow..
            A           G     A
we're gonna lay darling Corey down.

Can't you hear them bluebirds a-singing?
                    G        A
Don't you hear that mournful sound?
A                                 G
They're preaching darling Corey's funeral..
        A        G         A
in some lonesome graveyard ground.

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
