Evert Taube – Oxdragarsång lyrics

Allt bakom oxar tio frеn stadens sus och dus
Jag reste klockan, mitt mеl var Santa Cruz.
Med fyra ton pе kaдrran, gitarren I min hand,
Jag spelade fцare Herran och sjцng om Pampas land.

Dra, dra min gamla oxe det bдsta du fцrmеare!
Bra, bra min gamla oxe! Dдrhemma klцvern stеare.
Och knirra knarra, knirra min kдrra, knirr och knarr!
Och dirra darra dirra var strдng pе min gitarr!

Mе rika damer vila I gyllene gemak,
Jag och min bruna Lila inunder bambutak
Vid fattigdomen snuddar, men hon дare ung och varm,
Det finns ej bдttre kuddar дn hennes runda barm.
