    "True Story" Lyrics

    Bobby Bare

    (Shel Silverstein)

    This mornin' I jumped on my horse and went out for a ride
    Some wild outlaws chased me and they shot me in the side
    So I crawled into a wild cat's cave to find a place to hide
    But some pirates found me a sleepin' there and soon they had me tied.

    Till a lady zombie cut me loose and begged to be my bride
    So I said I'd come back Wednesday but I must admit I lied
    Cause I run away into the swamp but I forgot my guide
    And I stepped into some quicksand and no matter how I tried.

    I couldn't get out until I met a crocodile named Clyde
    Who took me to some cannibals who planned to have me fried
    They built a fire under me and I swear I almost cried
    Till an eagle come and swooped me up and through the air we flied.

    But he dropped me in a boilin' lake a thousand miles wide
    And you know what happened, then I died...
