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, ain�t no sentence
One year, Lordy, Lordy, ain�t 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 I�m 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, ain�t no sentence
One year, Lordy, Lordy, ain�t 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
