  1. Sing It Pretty

From the recording The John Ford Blues Society

Lyrics

COMIN OUTTA WEST VIRGINIA
HIGHWAY 64
THE ECONOLINE IS ON IT'S LAST LEG BABY
I DON'T THINK WE'LL BE TRAVLIN THAT MUCH ANYMORE

DOWN AT THE CARTER FAMILY FOLD
NINETEEN EIGHTY THREE
YOU SAID BUDDY WASN'T MUCH OF A KISSER
BUT JUNE CARTER HAD TO DISAGREE


SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
LIKE A LONESOME WHISTLE CRY
SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
SANG IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT MAMA OH MY MY


HEARD YOU TALK ABOUT CAL COLLINS
BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY
PLAYING AT MUSIC HALL TOGETHER
HE GOT YOU SO HIGH YOU COULDN'T FIND THE STAGE

HEADIN' TO A BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL
IN KNOXVILLE TENNESSEE
THE TIRES ON THE BUS STARTED EXPLODING
CUZ THE TEMPERATURE WAS HOVERING AROUND 100 DEGREES


SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
LIKE A LONESOME WHISTLE CRY
SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
SANG IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT MAMA OH MY MY

PLAYIN' WITH GREAT JOHN HARTFORD
TAKIN "OLD JOE CLARK" JUST AS FAST AS IT'D GO
THE YEARS FLEW BY LIKE MARKERS ON THE HIGHWAY
I'D SURE TAKE SOME BACK, HONEY DON'T YOU KNOW

SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
LIKE A LONESOME WHISTLE CRY
SING IT PRETTY FOR ME KATIE
SANG IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT MAMA OH MY MY
SANG IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT MAMA OH MY MY
