Crawdad Song Lyrics

You get a line and I'll get a pole, oh baby
You get a line and I'll get a pole, oh babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
An' I'll met you down by the crawdad hole
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

A well you don't miss water' til the well runs dry
You don't miss the water til the well runs dry
Don't miss the water til the well runs dry
An' you don't miss your man til he says good bye
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

So when you see me coming hoist your windows high
When you see me coming hoist your windows high
When you see me coming hoist your windows high
When you see me leavin' hang your head and cry
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

Watcha gonna do when your chair gives out, my sweet thing
Watcha gonna do when your chair gives out, my babe
When you got no liquor, no chair, no shoes
Well you lay cross the bed with your head in the blues
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

Oh well I dance all night with a bottle in my hand, oh baby
Dance all night with a bottle in my hand, oh babe
Dance all night with a bottle in my hand
I'm looking for a woman ain't got no man
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

Wonder what Satan's grumbling bout, oh baby
Wonder whet Satan's grumbling bout, oh babe
Wonder what Satan's grumbling bout
Oh well he's chained down in hell and can't get out
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

Wake up old man, you slept too late this mornin'
Wake up old man, you slept too late this evenin'
Wake up old man, you slept too late
The crawdad wagon done passed your gate
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine

You get a line and I'll get a pole, oh baby
You get a line and I'll get a pole, oh babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
An' I'll meet you down by the crawdad hole
Oh well a yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby mine
