Milk

Milk 'em In The Mornin' Blues

Tennessee Ernie Ford

(Ernest Ford, CAPITOL 15400, 1949)

I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues
This old barnyard heffer, got me blue down to my shoes
I get up in the mornin' before anthing stirs
I get smacked with a tail full of cockle burs
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues

This ole wall-eyed Jersey ain't worth the cut that she chews
I work hard all day, a-bringin' in my crops
Then I have to milk you and you won't give nine drops
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues

So, stand still you leather headed old heffer
I'll hang an odd on you at the rail in a minute
Sick and tired comin' out here every cold mornin'
Tryin' to milk you, now stand still

I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues
I don't know why I don't sell you
Except, look at the money I'd loose
You out your foot in the bucket, kick over the stool
I swear I'm gonna swap you for a blue nosed mule
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues

Now, look a-here old heffer
I'm really gonna tell you some news
Even though I said you wouldn't give nine squirts
Bless your old heart, I love you so much it hurts
I got the milk 'em in the mornin', feed 'em
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues (get over gal)
Milk 'em in the evenin' blues
