    "Big Mable Murphy" Lyrics

    Dallas Frazier

    (Dallas Frazier)

    Way back in '29 somewhere in Coffeeville
    Was a honky tonk named Big Mable Murphy's
    She had a sweetheart named Little Melvin
    And hair would fly between them every night.

    They say Little Melvin got wild on bathtub gin
    'Cause it made him grow to almost twice his size
    He'd try to take over and sass Big Mable
    And her great big fist would black Little Melvin's eyes.

    Big Mable Murphy she loved Little Melvin
    But he never did learn to do just what she said
    'Cause poor Little Melvin woke up every morning
    With two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head.

    Then late one rainy night Scarface Mouzziola
    Came in and started shoving folks around
    Big Mable Murphy was back in the kitchen
    So just for fun he shot Little Melvin down.

    Early next morning down by the river
    Scarface Mouzziola was found real short of breath
    They say that Scarface had died from a whoopin'
    He had two black eyes and knuckle bumps on his head.

    Big Mable Murphy's place raved on until she died
    And they say sometimes a tear would fill her eye
    And then she'd whisper Lord I'd give anything
    If once more I could black Little Melvin's eyes...
