Yazoo Street Scandal  The Band

Standin' out in [Em7]the night,
Elizah took me down
To see the Widow give
Rain to the town.
It's against the law
To be a tonic man,
But the Widow know
She's got the upper hand.
[B7]So I went on in
Feelin' kinda wheezy.
You know she soothed my mind, boys,
She r[A7]ocked me kinda slow and kinda easy
All da[Em7]y and all night.
[Em7]"Pick a card[Em7] 'fore you go--
It's a long trip to Mexico."
[Em7]Elizah waite[Em7]d by the door,
"I can't stay here anymore, no, no."
[B7]Then she took a pill
She washed her feet in the mud
She said "Look out son,
You know,[A7] I just started a flood
For forty days and forty nights".
Then I got my shoes,
And 'Lizah called my name.
She said it looked to her
Like it's gonna rain.
Then the Cotton King
He came in chokin'
And the Widow laughed and said:
"I ain't jokin'"--
[B7]"Think what you want"
She said, "Now don't ya tease me.
I just fell in love, boy,
So[A7] rock me kinda slow and kinda easy,
All day and all night."
[Em7]Sweet William said
With a drunken head:
"If I had a boat,
I'd help y'all float".
Elizah stood there watching
William in a trance,
As the widowed saint done the St. Vitus dance.
[B7]But just then an old man
With a boat named "Breezy"
Said: "You can ride with Clyde, boys,
If you[A7] rock it kinda slow and rock it kinda easy,
All [Em7]day and all night".
