    Lyrics

    (Johnny Cash and June Carter)
    We got married in a fever, hotter than a peppered sprout,
    We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson ...

    (Johnny Cash)
    ...ever since the fire went out.
    I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around,
    Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson,
    Look out Jackson town.

    (June Carter)
    Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health.
    Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself,
    Yeah, go to Jackson; go comb your hair!

    (Johnny Cash)
    Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson.

    (June Carter)
    See if I care.

    (Johnny Cash)
    When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow. (Hah!)
    All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how,
    I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loosen my coat.
    'Cos I'm goin' to Jackson.

    (June Carter)
    "Goodbye," that's all she wrote.

    But they'll laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a Pony Keg.
    They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound,
    With your tail tucked between your legs,
    Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man.
    And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Jaypan Fan.

    (Johnny Cash and June Carter)
    Well now, we got married in a fever, hotter than a peppered sprout,
    We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
    I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact.
    Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back.

    (Johnny Cash)
    Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a peppered sprout ...
