6. K. C. MOAN
I thought I heard that K. C. when she blow. (3x)
She blow like my woman's on board.
When I get back on that K. C. Road, (3x)
Gonna love my baby like I never loved before.
[Variations recorded by the Grateful Dead, but not in the Memphis Jug Band's recording:]
I thought I heard that diesel engine moan. (3x)
Well, she sound like she got a heavy load.
When I get back on the K. C. road, (3x)
Left my woman out there alone.
[As recorded by the Memphis Jug Band, 1929. According to The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics, the "Casey moan" was a moaning sound produced by a train whistle, the trademark of Casey Jones. "K. C. Road" probably referred to the Kansas City, Memphis, and Birmingham Railroad. The two concepts might have been confused by singers.]
