Raleigh and Spencer

Raleigh and Spencer

Raleigh and Spencer are burning down
Lord, there ain't no liquor in town
No, there ain't no liquor in town
What you gonna do to wet those lips
When this whole darn world's gone dry?
When this whole darn world's gone dry?

I've been all around this whole wide world
I've been down to Memphis, Tennessee
I've been down to Memphis, Tennessee
I've played cards with the king and the queen
Shot them dice with old Jesse James
Shot them dice with old Jesse James

I can eat more chicken than any one gal can fry
I can tell more lowdown lies
I can tell more lowdown lies
I can tell more lies than the stars in the skies
I'll never get to heaven when I die
No, I'll never get to heaven when I die

I've pawned my shoes for a bottle of booze
I drink it , I lay down and die
I drink it , I lay down and die
You can stomp down the flowers that grow round my grave
But they'll rise and bloom again
Yes, they'll rise and bloom again

Raleigh and Spencer are burning down
Lord, there ain't no liquor in town
No, there ain't no liquor in town

As sung by Laurie Lewis & Grant Street, "Singing' My Troubles Away," 1990 Flying
Fish
