Roger Miller – Stephen Foster lyrics

Well I was riding to the city
And my horse broke down, do-dah, do-dah
Blacksmith lived on the other side of town
Oh do-dah day

Well I'm gwan to run all night
Yes I'm gwan to run all day
I think Stephen Foster was ahead of his time
That's all I've got to say

Well a nickel is a nickel
And a dime is a dime, do-dah, do-dah
You can't make a dollar sittin' down all the time
Oh do-dah day

Well I'm gwan to run all night
Yes I'm gwan to run all day
I think Stephen Foster was ahead of his time
That's all I've got to say

Well I got to the city
And I went downtown, do-dah, do-dah
Cotton went up and it all came down
Oh do-dah day

Well I'm gwan to run all night
Yes I'm gwan to run all day
I think Stephen Foster was ahead of his time
That's all I've got to say

I got a room full of people
And a handful of friends, do-dah, do-dah
That's how it goes and that's how it ends
Oh do-dah day

Well I'm gwan to run all night
Yes I'm gwan to run all day
I think Stephen Foster was ahead of his time
That's all I've got to say
