Dose of Powder

In the yard this morning
i was busting up an old chiffarobe of mine
preacher come a calling
said always keep your kindling dry

you might see my milk cow
you can tell her by the way she's moaning low
if you see my milk cow
please drive her home

sister ride a pony
mama take the plow mule home
daddy's on the roadside
flagging down that low black ford

bring me a dose of powder
mama get yourself to bed
if i start drinking liquor
i swear i'll go all out my head

been to california
that's where i learned the memphis boogaloo
i'm going back to england
i'm gonna take my monkey too
