Better Than A Drunkard's Dream

lyrics

I gotta a girl loves me true
Her hair’s curly and her eyes are blue
When I get to thinkin’ that I’m all alone
My baby shows me it ‘aint true

Now, the rain falls heavy on the house I’m in
The chill comes creepin’ and the walls are thin
I got a little bit of lovin’ that’ll keep me warm
Until the sun comes out again

I just can’t get enough
She’s better than a drunkard’s dream
Got a lovin’ that just wont stop
So I keep on drinkin’ from her lovin’ cup

Though I got no money to call my own
Got more honey than a man can own
You might pick a lot of paper from the money tree
But I’m the one that’s getting all the gold

Sampson said, Delilah would you cut my hair?
Delilah said to Sampson that she didn’t care
But when he fell asleep Delilah went to work
And when he woke up his head was bare

Love can be a poison that’ll make you blue
It ‘aint hard to find a lover that’ll be untrue
But when you find somebody gives you all their love
You better think about what you do

I just can’t get enough
She’s better than a drunkard’s dream
Got a lovin’ that just wont stop
So I keep on drinkin’ from her lovin’ cup

When I get so old that I can’t see
I’ll have my baby to walk with me
Take me to the river where the grass is green
And kiss me underneath the trees
