Hank Snow – Bob lyrics

Thanks for the bed and board Bob,
Enjoyed my stay
But I got just a little bit bored Bob
Be on my way.

So you got yourself a job Bob
That's not for me
You got a house and a wife Bob
But I'm still free.

Remember the good ole days around the Frisco yard Bob
For you they're gone
Now your wife's lookin' at me kinda hard Bob
I'll move along.

--- Instrumental ---

So you got yourself a housewife Bob
And a housenote too
Reclining chairs and phone bills Bob
That's not for you.

I'm a headin' out la way Bob
There ain't no spare
The freight pulls out today Bob
Do you dare?

Remember the good times down in New Orleans Bob
That Cajun Queen
And your wife's lookin' at me kinda hard Bob
She thinks I'm mean.

--- Instrumental ---

Thanks for the bed and board Bob
Enjoyed my stay
But just forget all the top Bob
'Bout the good ole days.

'Cause your wife's a little bit scared Bob
You wanna be free
But you and me both know Bob
You're better off than me.

Remember the cold nights out on Frisco yard Bob
And the hard cold ground
Now your wife's lookin' at me kinda hard Bob
See you around...
