Em7 Standin' out in the night, Elizah 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 know She's got the upper hand. B7 So I went on in Feelin' kinda wheezy. You know she soothed my mind, boys, A7 She rocked me kinda slow and kinda easy Em7 All day and all night. Em7 Em7 "Pick a card 'fore you go-- It's a long trip to Mexico." Em7 Em7 Elizah waited by the door, "I can't stay here anymore, no, no." B7 Then she took a pill She washed her feet in the mud She said "Look out son, A7 You know, I just started a flood For forty days and forty nights". Then I got my shoes, And 'Lizah called my name. She said it looked to her Like it's gonna rain. Then the Cotton King He came in chokin' And the Widow laughed and said: "I ain't jokin'"-- B7 "Think what you want" She said, "Now don't ya tease me. I just fell in love, boy, A7 So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy, All day and all night." Em7 Sweet William said With a drunken head: "If I had a boat, I'd help y'all float". Elizah stood there watching William in a trance, As the widowed saint done the St. Vitus dance. B7 But just then an old man With a boat named "Breezy" Said: "You can ride with Clyde, boys, A7 If you rock it kinda slow and rock it kinda easy, Em7 All day and all night".
