lyrics

the first time is saw darling corey
she was sitting by the banks of the sea
she had a forty four wrapped around her body
she had a five string on her knee

Wake up, wake up darling corey
what makes you sleep so sound
the revenue officers are coming
they're gonna tear your still house down

Go away, go away darling corey
get up out of my bed
your liquor has ruined my body
pretty woman gone straight to my head

Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow
dig a hole in the cold cold ground
Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow
we're gonna lay darling corey down

Can't you hear the bluebirds a-singin'?
It's such a sad, sorrowful sound
they're preaching darling corey's funeral
in some lonesome graveyard ground
