GUEST,John Leeder Lyr Req: Jawbone (14) RE: Lyr Req: Jawbone 19 Oct 00

The New Lost City Ramblers recorded "Old Jaw Bone" (sometimes called "Old Joe Bone"), a song from the Carter Brothers and Sons, lots of raw energy but quite misogynisctic. One verse I can recall, without digging out the LP, is

A jawbone walking, a jawbone talking,

A jawbone eating with a knife and fork, and

I laid my jawbone on a fence,

And I ain't seen nothing of my jawbone since.


Old jawbone, couldn't get along,

Here comes Sally with a red dress on.

(Or maybe a blue dress.) Sound like it?
