There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell
Jury found him guilty
Gave him sixteen years in hell
You can roll me round your finger
You can roll me if I'm blind
You can roll me tally ho ho
I'm easy rollin' kind
You learn to sing
You learn to play
Why don't the businessman
Ever learn to pay
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go down to New Orleans
You know I love you so
Well, I met her in the garden
Underneath that old apple tree
Sitting with a handful of flowers
Looking as cool as can be
