    "Black-Eyed Suzie" Lyrics

    Ricky Skaggs

    Black eyed Susie went to town
    All she wore was a gingham gown.

    Hey, Black eyed Susie
    Ho Black eyed Susie
    Hey, Black eyed Susie Jane.

    I may get drunk, I may get woozy
    But I'm comin' home to Black eyed Susie.

    Black eyed Susie's long and tall
    Sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall.

    Hey, old man I want your daughter
    To chop my wood and carry my water.

    Black eyed Susie lives in a holler
    She won't come and I won't call her.

    All I want in this creation
    Pretty little wife on a big plantation.

    All I need to make me happy
    Two little boys to call me Pappy.

    One name Sop and the other name Gravy
    One sop it up and the other gonna save it.

    Up Red Oak and down salt water
    Some old man gonna lose his daughter.

    Black eyed Susie went huckleberry pickin'
    Came home late and took a lickin'.

    Love my wife and love my baby
    Love my biscuits sopped in gravy.

    Goin' back home with a pocket full of money
    Somebody there to call me honey...
