Thread Name: Lyr Req: That Old Tattooed Lady
Subject: RE: That Old Tattooed Lady
Here is the Skeets McDonald lyrics (My father has sung this song to me for over 45 years!) Catchy little tune....

Once I married a tattooed lady
Twas on one dark and windy day
And tattooed all around her body
Was a map of the good ol' USA
And every night before I'd go to sleep
I'd jerk back the covers and I'd take a peek:
(whatya see Skeet?) {spoken}
Upon her leg was Minnesota,
On her knee was Tennessee,
And tattooed on her back
Was good old Rackensack
The place where I long to be.
And on her (wolf whistle) was West Virginia
Those hills I love to roam;
But when I saw the moonlight on her Mississippi
That's when I recognized my home sweet home.
