Long Gone Like A Turkey Thru The Corn (Long John)

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Country Blues (1960).

Long gone, like a turkey through the corn
Long gone, like turkey through the corn
Long gone, with my long pyjamas on

Whoa, looka young
Whoa, I see
That railride captain there boys
He's coming after me

I'm long gone, like a turkey through the
Long gone, like turkey through the
Long gone, with my long pyjamas on

Well you know you couldn't be
You'd have stayed at home
I'd work for your grand mary down
On your grand paws sawn

I'm long gone, like a turkey through the
Long gone, with my long pyjamas on
Yes I'm gone
Got to go now
Yes got to go
With my long pyjamas on

Woke up this morn
'Bout the break o' day
I heard those hills hum boys
They was on their way

I'm long gone, like turkey through the
Long gone, like turkey through the
Long gone, with my long pyjamas on
Yes, I got to go again

You heard me

Long gone

Well, you know Ral
She the water dog
She can swim big bransy boys in
And he can walk a foot long

I'm long gone, like turkey through the
Long gone, with my long pyjamas on

Jus' had to get away from that
