Strange Desert 1947

B7 G7 The sky turned green as I was counting sheep
B7 G7Under my sleeping bag about to fall asleep
C G B7From the sky flew a ball of light
C G B7Gripped with fear I closed my zipper tight
C7 B7 EYou know I've always been a severe xenophobe
C7 B7 EAnd I saw strange men with instruments aiming to probe
C7 B7 EThey had big heads and they had big black eyes
C7 B7 EThey were short and skinny and really funny looking guys
VERSE 2 One started through my backpack one picked up my guitar He strummed a string and jumped into the other one's arms One found the Old Crow bottle took a sniff but not a drink Passed it around and they all had a smell of that bottle of stink This went on for a while till I grabbed the bottle and I guzzled I must have guzzled a pint and a half or more just to show these superior extraterrestrials We may not have your advance technology But I do believe I can drink you all under every operating table From here to the next galaxy VERSE 3 Then I passed it back and they all had a big swallow They began to dance around and scream and shout and holler But overall I'd say we had a good time I even played my guitar Until the campfire died we just laid there staring up at the stars We laid awhile till they had to stumble on back to their ship I said "Be careful fellows, have a safe trip" I watched that craft wobble in the sky as they did go It's such a strange desert here in Southern New Mexico
