Darling Corey

Wake up, wake up Darling Corey Tell me what makes you sleep so sound The revenue officers are comin' Gonna tear your still house down Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Dig a hole in the cold, cold ground Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Gonna lay Darling Corey down Oh the first time I saw Darling Corey She was standin' in the door She had her shoes and her stockings in her hand And her little bare feet on the floor Oh the next time I saw Darling Corey She was standin' by the banks of the sea she had a 44 strapped around her body And a banjo on her knee Oh the last time I saw Darling Corey She had a wine glass in her hand She was drinkin' that sweet liquor With a low down gamblin' man.
