Wish I was a mole in the ground
Wish I was a mole in the ground
Mole in the ground, I'd root that mountain down
Wish I was a mole in the ground
Wish I was a lizard in the spring
Wish I was a lizard in the spring
A lizard in the spring, I'd hear my true love sing
If I was a mole in the ground

Don't marry a railroad man
Don't marry a railroad man
A railroad man gonna kill you if he can
And drink up your blood like wine

Baby wants a nine dollar shawl
Baby wants a nine dollar shawl
When I come around the hill with my twenty dollar bill
She says honey where you been so long
Now, baby where you been so long
Honey where you been so long
Said I been to Caroline to see that gal of mine
That's where I been so long
I said, honey where'd you stay last night
Baby where'd you stay last night
Said I stayed around the bend
With some rough and rowdy men
And now I'm goin back again

Repeat first verse
