lyrics

Hey Eli, where you going
I’m going down to Mrs. Fisher’s well
Her Eli, where you going
I’m going to fill up this rusty old pale
Because the drinkings good and the well runs deep
Those swaying thighs do haunt my sleep
Gonna take a taste, gonna spread my paste
Sift through the nasty sweat and the broken lace
Hey Eli, where you going?

Hey Eli, where you going?...

Hey Eli, where you going
I’m going down to Mrs. Harper’s town
Hey Eli, where you going
The king is gone, gonna wear his crown
The road is long, but the reward is great
Sing her song and then open her gate
Don’t need no cash to taste her little stash
Lay in her field, turn this wood into ash
Hey Eli, where you going?

Hey Eli where you going….

One morning while looking at the moon so red
Thought I heard creeping on the stairs
I gave no heed, I didn’t have no cares
The door began to open; I fall right out of bed
The king returned to the castle armed with hot lead
As I grabbed my .38, this is what she said

Hey Eli, where you going…

Hey Eli where you going
I’m running away from Sherriff Devareux’s gun
Hey Eli, where you going
I hope to be alive at the orange dawn
The night air is thick and the hounds are loud
Sweat’s dripping like rain from a cloud
For my life of love, for my life of sins
I’m gonna run till my days end
Hey Eli where you going?

Hey Eli where you going…
