Mo boys, is you right
Done got it right
All I hate about linin’ track
These ol’ boys are gonna break my back

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Down in the holler below the fleld
Angels working on the chariot wheel

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Mary and the babe was a sittin’ in the shade
Thinking on the money that I ain’t made

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Gotta batten down the waves with a 2 by 4

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Now if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
All them disciples dead and gone

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track

Mo boys, is you right
Done got it right
All I hate about lining track
These ol’ boys about to break my back

Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
Mo boys, can’t you line ’em (track a lack)
See Eloise gonna line ’em track
