Idabel Blues – As peformed by Stoney Larue

Runnin hard runnin fast
Tryin to get away
Goin to the bayou
Where no one knows my name
No one knows my name

CHORUS:

Won’t you hide me pa
For the red river is my grave
Is my grave
Won’t you hide me pa
For the red river is my grave
Is my grave

Well I had a job real good pay
Watchin summer’s crop
Made a hundred bucks a day
Guardin those green tops
Guardin those green tops

CHORUS

August night up real high
Rifle in my hand
Whiskey drinks forty winks
Cleared my buddy’s land
Cleared my buddy’s land

CHORUS

Well I spent my time in Idabel
Just trying to get ahead
Friends I’ve known all my life
Wishing I was dead
They’s wishin I was dead

CHORUS

Runnin hard runnin fast
Tryin to get away
Goin to the bayou
Where no one knows my name
No one knows my name

CHORUS

Is my grave
Is my grave
