Junco Partner

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Papa Mali with 7 Walkers, and by Anders Osborne with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2013.

Down the road, came a junco partner
He was loaded as could be
Lord, he was knocked-out, knocked-out loaded
And he was singing, singing this song for me

Six months, ainít no sentence
One year, Lordy, Lordy, ainít no time
Hey my partner in Angola
Doing one to ninety-nine

If I had, if I had a million dollars
Let me tell you, all to call my own
I would buy me the land around [?]
And I would build me, a home to call my own

Down the road, down the road, down the road came a junco partner
He was loaded, loaded as could be
Lord, he was knocked-out, knocked-out loaded
And he was singing, singing this song for me

Down the road, down the road, down the road, down the road
Lordy, Mrs Jones
[?]
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Make a penny, make a nickel, make a nickel, make a dime
Make a quarter, make you high
Makes you high

Give me whiskey when Iím thirsty
Give me some good gin when I'm dry
Give me some iced tea when I'm horny
A little heroin just before I die

I put on my watch and pistol
Put [?] my [?] chain
I would call my sweet little [?]
Well the girl, you know, wouldn't even sign her name

Down the road, down the road, down the road came a junco partner
He was loaded, loaded as could be
Lord, he was knocked-out, knocked-out loaded
And he was singing, singing this song for me

Six months, ainít no sentence
One year, Lordy, Lordy, ainít no time
Hey my partner in Angola
Doing one to ninety-nine
He was doing one to ninety-nine
He was doing one to ninety-nine
