      About "Old Joe Clark"

      Lyrics for Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - "Old Joe Clark"

      Old Joe Clark's a fine old man
      Tell you the reason why
      He keeps good likker 'round his house
      Good old Rock and Rye

      Fare ye well, Old Joe Clark
      Fare ye well, I say
      Fare ye well, Old Joe Clark
      I'm a going away

      Old Joe Clark, the preacher's son
      Preached all over the pain
      The only text he ever knew
      Was High, low, Jack and the game

      Old Joe Clark had a mule
      His name was Morgan Brown
      And every tooth in that mule's head
      Was sixteen inches around

      Old Joe Clark had ayellow cat
      She would neither sing or pray
      She stuck her head in the butermilk jar
      And washed her sins away

      Old Joe Clark had a house
      Fifteen stories high
      And every story in that house
      Was filled with chicken pie

      I went down to Old Joe's house
      He invited me to supper
      I stumped my toe on the table leg
      And stuck my nose in the butter

      Now I wouldn't marry a widder
      Tell you the reason why
      She'd have so many children
      They'd make those biscuits fly

      Sixteen horses in my team
      The leaders they are blind
      And every time the sun goes down
      There's a pretty girl on my mind

      Eighteen miles of mountain road
      And fifteen miles of sand
      If ever travel this road again
      I'll be a married man
