Listen
I hear music
That old tune
Streak of lean, streak of fat
Boy I've dance to me ______ after that
Listen to that man play that Tennessee chicken
What you mean ___ bow feed at the same time
Boy he likes his Cincinnati chicken
Bow crazy
Ain't gonna live long now
Remind me when I used to carry that Johnson gal around those dances
Such fiddlin'
Never heard nothing like it before
Boys I take a streak of lean and a streak of fat on that
