Rose Maddox – Molly And Tenbrooks lyrics

Run ol' Molly run run ol' Molly run
Tenbrooks gonna beat you to the bright and shinin' sun
To the bright and shinin' sun oh Lord to the bright and shinin' sun
Tenbrooks was big bad horse he had a shaggy mane
He went all around to Memphis he'd beat the Memphis train
Beat the Memphis train oh Lord beat the Memphis train
[ banjo ]
The women all're laughin' the children all're cryin'
The men're a hollerin' ol' Tenbrooks is flyin'
Ol' Tenbrooks is flyin' oh Lord ol' Tenbrooks is flyin'
Out in California well Molly done as she pleased
Come back to ol' Kentucky got beat with all ease
Beat with all ease oh Lord beat with all ease
[ mandolin ]
Kiper Kiper you're not ridin' as right
Molly's beatin' ol' Tenbrooks clear her out of sight
Clear her out of sight oh Lord clear her out of sight
Kiper Kiper Kiper my son
Your ol' Tenbrooks provide her let ol' Tenbrooks run
Let ol' Tenbrooks run oh Lord let ol' Tenbrooks run
[ fiddle ]
Goin' catch ol' Tenbrooks and hitch him in the shade
We gonna bury ol' Molly in coffin ready made
Coffin ready made oh Lord coffin ready made
