The Brothers FourThe Brothers Four – Darling Corey lyrics
Wake up, wake up Darlin Cora
Wanna see you one more time
The sheriff and his hound dogs a coming
I gotta move on down the line.
I dont know why darlin Cora
Dont know what the reason can be
But I never had found a single town
Where me and my boss-man agree.
I aint a man to be played with
I aint nobodys toy
Been working for my pay for a long, long time
How come he still calls me boy.
Well Id rather drink muddy water
And sleep in a hollowed out log
Than to hang around in this old town
And be treated like a dirty dog.
Well I whopped that man darlin Cora
And he fell down where he stood
Dont know if I was wrong darlin Cora
But Lord it sure felt good.
If it wasnt so dark darlin Cora
Youd see tears trickling down my face
It breaks my heart darlin Cora
But I got to leave this place.
Wake up, wake up darlin Cora...
