Ballad Of A High School Jock

Cat. #0616 (MFH #68) - As sung by Boyce Davis, Lincloln, Arkansas on February 29, 1968

Well, I was do'n fine with that gal o' mine
An' life for me was a treat
When I was shot out of th saddle
By a high school athlete
I got shaked out, now I can't make out
Her heart for me shes locked
For I was shot out'a th saddle
By a - high school jock
She calls him her high school hero
Thinks he's sharp but then
His only weakness I can see
Is that he has to be home by ten
It would'nt be so bad, if she found some cad
Who was somethin besides a toy
But I was shot out'a th saddle
By a (high school glamour boy)

Boyce says, he wrote this because of a local happening.
