Southern Fried Shuffle

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Recorded by Robert Hunter for an unreleased album. Possibly sung by Shelley Ralston.

Baby and me used to go downtown
Spend all evening in the cabaret
Check home, catch up, then fly away again
Singing [singing, singing]
Sha-na-na-na na-na-na

I can bring you mountain water
I can tell you all the city news
Got no feeling 'bout it, never dream about it
Going for broke, and that's all she wrote

Southern fried chicken never satisfied me
Give us kidney pie and a nice cup of tea
Get up, get out, don't come around again
Singing [singing, singing]
Sha-na-na-na na-na-na

I can bring you mountain water
I can tell you all the city news
Got no feeling 'bout it, never dream about it
Going for broke, and that's all she wrote

Sha-na-na-na na-na-na

Shadrach, Meshach, give me the dough
Take me to the foreman of the rodeo
Stand back, one track, can't get away with it
Sha-na-na-na na-na-na

I can bring you mountain water
I can tell you all the city news
Got no feeling 'bout it, never dream about it
Going for broke, and that's all she wrote

Going for broke, and that's all she wrote
