New, New Minglewood Blues
-------------------------

I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den
I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den

Oh, my number one occupation
Is stealing women from their men

Well, I'm a wanted man in Texas,
busted jail and I'm gone for good.
Said, I'm a wanted man in Texas,
busted jail and I'm gone for good.
Well, the sheriff couldn't catch me,
but his little girl sure wished she could.

Well now the doctor call me crazy,
sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't,
Said now the doctor call me crazy,
sometimes I am, sometimes I ain't,
Yes, and the preacher man call me sinner
but his little girl call me saint.

Well a couple shots of whiskey
women round here start looking good,
I said a couple shots of whiskey
women round here start looking good,
A couple more shots of whiskey,
I'm going down to Minglewood.

Said, I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den
Said, I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den

Yes and my number one occupation
Is stealing women from their men

I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den
I was born in the desert
Raised in a lion's den

Oh, my number one occupation
Is stealing women from their men
