Hot Time In Old Town, Tonight

Cat. #1337 (MFH #920) - As sung by Elsa Bowin, El Dorado, Arkansas on July 11, 1969

One cold night when we was snug in bed
Miss O'Leary left th lantern in th shed
When th cow kicked it over
She winked 'er eye an' siad
There'll be a hot time in th old town tonight
Fire, fire, fire
(Repeat as above)
