Kingston Trio – Folksinger's Song lyrics

Mike Settle

Well, how many beans could Woody have picked when he was always writing songs?
You believe that story about hard travelin', well, I can tell you right now you're wrong!
You see the only thing Woody picked was his guitar.
He had a very close friend writing words in the car.
How many beans could Woody have picked when he was always writing songs?

How many jail songs could Allen write? He ain't never been in jail!
The only thing that Allen knows about jail is who to go his bail!
He had a thing going with a prison guard.
He had a tape recorder hooked up in the prison yard.
How many jail songs could Allen write? He ain't never been in jail!

Now who was it that got that blues singer out of jail and got him singin' and playin'
And whose idea was it for him to start singin'
So you couldn't understand what he was sayin'
And who led them blind folksingers around? Well, you can take it from me.
Ain't nobody led them blind cats around 'cause they can really see!
Yeah, they can really see!
