E7 I been balling a shiny black steel jack-hammer, A7 Been chippin' up rocks for the great highway, E7 A7 E7 I'll live five years if I take my time, A7 Ballin' that jack and a drinkin' my wine. E7 A7 I been chippin' them rocks from dawn till doom, While my rider hide my bottle in the other room. Doctor say better stop ballin' that jack, If I live five years I gonna bust my back, yes I will. Chorus Intro A7 E7 Easy wind cross the Bayou today A7 Cause there's a whole lotta women, mama, E7 Out in red on the streets today. B And the river keeps a talkin', A C E But you never heard a word it said. Chorus Outro Gotta find a woman be good to me, Won't hide my liquor try to serve me tea, Cause I'm a stone jack baller and my heart is true And I'll give everything that I got to you, yes I will. Easy wind going cross the Bayou today There's a whole lotta women Out in red on the streets today. And the rivers keep a talkin', But you never heard a word it said.
