Blood, Sweat & Tears – Hi-De-Ho That Old Sweet Roll lyrics

Hi de ho, hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
I'm singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

I've been down so low, bottom looked like up
Once I thought that seconds saves was enough to fill my cup
Now I offered all I got and that it ain't no way to live
Bein' taken by the ones who got the least amount to give

Hi de ho, hi de hi
I'm gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
I'm singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

Once I met the Devil, he was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods and said, "You can have your pick"
But when he laid that paper on me and he showed me where to sign
I said, "Thank you", very kindly but I'm in too great a need of mine

Hi de ho, hi de hi
I'm gonna get me a piece of the sky, who knows
I'm gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
I'm singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

Hi de ho, hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
I'm singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

Singin' hi de ho, hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
Singin' hi de hi de hi de hi de ho
