Subject: Lyrics req'd: SWAMP MUSIC (King - Van Zant)
From: kozlevcar@blaze.net.au
Date: 11 Jan 97 - 10:03 AM

Can anybody help with lyrics for SWAMP MUSIC song by King & Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Second Helping album? I only have one of their music books and this song is not in it. These sort of books and materials are very hard to find here Downunder in Australia and we are having a bit of trouble understandig this accent.

Copied from http://www.rhapsody.com/lynyrdskynyrd/alltimegreatesthits/swampmusic/lyrics.html and adjusted a bit my me.

SWAMP MUSIC
Ed King, Ronnie Van Zant* (of Lynyrd Skynyrd)

I'm goin' down to the swamp. Gonna watch me a hound dog catch me a coon.
Well, I'm goin' down to the swamp. Gonna watch me a hound dog catch me a coon.
You know the hound dog makin' music, on a summer night by the midnight moon.

Oh, fetch my cane pole, mama. Gonna catch a bream or maybe two.
Lord, fetch my cane pole, mama. Gonna catch a bream or maybe two.
When the hound dogs start barkin', sound like ol' Son House singin' the blues.

Hound dog sing that
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music, swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music.
When the hound dog starts singin', I ain't got them big ol' city blues.

Go ahead, pretty mama. Lord, just take that city hike.
Said, go ahead, pretty mama. Just take your city hike.
Well, I'd rather live with the hound dogs for the rest of my natural born life.

Singin' that
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music, swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music.
Well, I'd rather live with the hound dogs for the rest of my natural born life.
Well, I want to live with the hound dogs for the rest of my natural born life.

[*not to be confused with Townes Van Zandt.]
