The Bootleggers Dream

Cat. #0384 (MFH #55) - As sung by Mr. Dillard Reeves, Huntsville, Arkansas on July 30, 1959

I am thinking today of my ole home
Down among th hills of old Tenneessee
I been thinking today of my ole pals
And I wonder if they ever think of me

O, I'm going to leave this ole jail tomorrow
Going to leave this ole jail, all alone
O, I'm going to be with my ole pals tomorrow
Never more will I leave there or to roam

O, I told you boys, that I'd be with you
And I'm leaving tonight on th eastbound train
I can see from my window on th hillside
That th roses have all bloomed again
