Oh Susanna – Jackson Wilson lyrics

Medicine bottle
And a preachin' bone
Boxcar daughter
And a Blackfoot tombstone

Cheyenne slaughter
Up at sandcreek road
Standin' in the Water
Full of six steel jacket holes

And it must be the ghost of a Jackson Wilson
Must be the ghost of a Jackson Wilson
Must be the ghost of a Jackson Wilson
Rattlin' the bones of an old hooker, Jim

Chickasaw rope
On the Union plains
Captain Jack hung low
In the Mankato jail

Knockin' on the door
With a Colt. 38
Sayin', "Did ya see Little Crow
Flyin' away, Jane? "

It must be the ghost of Jackson Wilson
Must be the ghost of Jackson Wilson
Must be the ghost of Jackson Wilson
Rattlin' the bones of old hooker, Jim
