Ringtones Ringtones: Send Yazoo Street Scandal Ringtones to your Cell

Stranded out in the night, Eliza took me down

To see the widow give rain to the town

It's against the law to be a tonic man

But the widow knowed she got the upper hand

So I went on in feelin' kinda wheezy

You know she soothed my mind, boys

She rocked me kinda slow and easy

All day an' all night

A pick a card before you go

It's a long trip to Mexico

Eliza, wait by the door

I can't stay here anymore, no, no, no

Then she took a pill, she washed her feet in the mud

She said "Look out son, you know, I just ordered a flood

For forty days and forty nights"

Then I dropped my shoes, Eliza, called my name

She said, it looked to her like it's gonna rain

Then the cotton king, it came in chokin'

And the widow laughed and said, "I ain't jokin', take once for all"

She said "Now don't you tease me

I just fell in love, boy

So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy

All day an' all night"

Sweet William said with a drunken head

"If I had a boat, I'd help y'all float"

Eliza, stood there watchin' William in a trance

As the widow sent on the St. Vitus dance

But just then an' old man with a boat named Breezy

Said, "You can ride with Clyde, boys

If you rock it kinda slow and easy

All day and all night"
