[E7]I been balling a shiny black steel jack-hammer,
Been [A7]chippin’ up rocks for the great highway,
I’ll [E7]live five years if I take my time,
[A7]Ballin’ that jack and a drinkin’ my wine.
I [E7]been chippin’ them rocks from dawn till doom,
While my [A7]rider hide my bottle in the other room.
[E7]Doctor say better stop ballin’ that jack,
If I [A7]live five years I gonna bust my back, yes I will.
[A7]Easy wind cross the Bayou to
Cause there’s a
[A7]whole lotta women, mama,
Out in red on the streets to [E7]day.
And the [B]river keeps a talkin’,
But you [A]never [C]heard a
word it [E]said.
Gotta find a woman be good to me,
Won’t hide my liquor try to serve me tea,
Cause I’m a stone jack baller and my heart is true
And I’ll give everything that I got to you, yes I will.
Easy wind going cross the Bayou today
There’s a whole lotta women
Out in red on the streets today.
And the rivers keep a talkin’,
But you never heard a word it said.
