Instant Armadillo Blues

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

Yeah, when I get up this morning
I tell ya what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna pack my suitcase, honey
And I'm gonna leave with you

Going down to Austin
We're going down, see the town, hang around, down in Austin
We're going down to Austin
Going down to watch the armadillo rootin'
Armadillo rootin' on the ground

When I get down to Austin
I'm gonna sit my bottom right down
Grab a little bit of that Lone Star beer, honey
Plan to hang around down in Austin

Going down, see the town, hang around, down in Austin
Yeah, we're going down to Austin
Going down to watch the armadillo rootin'
Armadillo rootin' on the ground

Yeah, when I get up this morning
I tell ya what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna pack my suitcase, honey
And I'm a-gonna leave with you

We're going down to Austin
Going down, see the town, hang around, down in Austin
Yeah, we're going down to Austin
Going down to watch the armadillo rootin'
Armadillo rootin' on the ground

Yeah, we're going down to Austin
Going down to watch the armadillo rootin'
Armadillo rootin' on the ground

Yeah, yeah, yeah we're going down to Austin
Going down to watch the armadillo rootin'
Armadillo rootin' on the ground
