Well it's early in the morning
Baby when I rise a well a 

I got aches and pains lordy mama
Makes a man want to die a well a

Well it's hard it's hard lordy rollin´
Come on boys a well a

It takes rocks and gravel to make a
To make a solid road a well a

Well it ain't ever done lordy mamma
There's a captain that's got a gun a well a

Well a whose ever told lady told a, 
He told a dirty lie a well a

He said I heard that my woman done leave me
Well o well a well

I ain't been to Georgie, Georgie
But I been told a well a

They say that Georgie gals Lordy baby
I got a sweet Jenny roll a well a
