I got that dust new-mon-ee, new-mon-ee in my lungs
And I'm gonna sing that dust new-mon-ee song
I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "My son"
"You got that dust new-mon-ee, an' you aint got long, not long"
Now there ought to be some yodelin' in this song
But I can't yodel for the rattlin' in my lungs
My good gal sings the dust new-mon-ee blues
She loves me 'cause she has the dust new-mon-ee too
If it weren't for choppin my hole would turn to rust
I can't find a woman in this black ol' Texas dust
Down in Oklahoma, the wind blows mighty strong
If you want to get a momma, just sing a California song
Down in Texas, my gal fainted in the rain
I throwed a bucket of dirt in her face, just to bring her back again
