Lyrics
Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey
And every cow and calf, I believe was born to die

I'm a-milk my heifer, milk her in a churn
I'll milk my heifer, I'll milk her in a churn
If you see my rider, tell her it ain't a darn thing doin'

I wringed my hands, baby, and I wanted to scream
I wringed my hands, honey, and I wanted to scream
And when I woke up I thought it was all a dream

Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey
And every cow and calf, I believe was born to die

Hey, hey-hey, I ain't gonna be here long
Hey, hey-hey, pretty mama, I ain't gonna be here long
That's the reason why you hear me singin' my old lonesome song

Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey, hey-hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
And every cow's calf, honey, got to be dyin'

I walked the levee from end to end
I walked the levee, honey, from end to end
I was just tryin' to find, my calf, again

I'm feelin' back to my used-to
I feel a notïon, back to my used-to-be
I have a pretty mama, she don't care for me
