Oh down the road come poor little junco
Boy, he was loaded as he could be
The poor man was knocked out, knocked out and loaded
And he was wobbling all over the street

I heard him singing six months ain't no sentence
He said one year was not no time
Said he had friends still in Angola
Serving from fourteen to ninety nine

You know when he had plenty of money
He had a friend all over town
Since he been broke, scraggly and hungry
Not a single friend can be found

Well, the poor man pawned his watch and pistol
Oh he pawned his diamond ring
He tried to pawn the woman he was loving
But the poor girl couldn't sign her name

She said give him water when he get thirsty
Tell him that water is mighty fine when your dry
Give him a tincture when he gets sickly
Give him the graveyard then if he dies

Give him a tincture when he gets sickly
Give him the graveyard in case he dies

Give him the graveyard then if he dies

Give him the graveyard in case he dies
