Stranded out in the night,
Eliza took me down
To see the widow give
Rain to the town.
It's against the law
To be a tonic man,
But the widow knows
She's got the upper hand.
So i went on in
Feelin' kinda wheezy.
You know she soothed my mind, boys,
She rocked me kinda slow and easy
All day and all night.
Pick a card before you go
It's a long trip to Mexico.
Eliza wait by the door,
I can't stay here anymore, no, no.
Then she took a pill
She washed her feet in the mud
She said "look out son,
You know, i just ordered a flood
For forty days and forty nights".
Then i dropped my shoes,
Eliza called my name.
She said it looked to her
Like it's gonna rain.
Then the cotton king
Came in chokin'
And the widow laughed and said:
"i ain't jokin'.
Take once for all"
She said "now don't ya tease me.
I just fell in love, boy,
So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy,
All day and all night."
Sweet William said
With a drunken head:
"if i had a boat,
I'd help why all float".
Eliza stood there watching,
William in a trance,
As the widow did the st. vitus dance.
But just then an old man
With a boat named "breezy"
Said, "you can ride with Clyde, boys,
If you rock it kinda slow and easy,
All day and all night".
