Sweet Betsy From Pike
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Jimmie Driftwood

G D7 G
Now don't you remember Sweet Betsy from Pike
A7 D7
Who crossed the big mountains with her lover Ike
G C G
Two yoke of oxen a big yeller dog
D7 G
A tall Shanghai rooster and one spotted hog

D7 G
One evenin' quite early they camped on the plat
A7 D7
Down by the road on a green shady flat
G C G
Where Betsy got tired and lay down to repose
D7 G
And Ike he just gazed on his Pike County Road

D7 G
Well they soon reached the desert where Betsy gave out
A7 D7
Down in the sand she lay rollin' about
G C G
While Ike in great tears looked on in surprise
D7 G
Said Betsy get up you'll get sand in your eyes

D7 G
Well the Shanghai ran off and the cattle all died
A7 D7
The last piece of bacon that mornin' was fried
G C G
Ike got discouraged and Betsy got mad
D7 G
The dog wagged his tail and looked wonderfully sad

D7 G
Well a miner said Betsy will you dance with me
A7 D7
I will now ol' hoss if you don't make to free
G C G
But don't dance me hard do you want to know why
D7 G
Doggone you I'm chalked full of strong alkali

D7 G
Ike and Sweet Betsy got married of course
A7 D7
But Ike gettin' jealous obtained a divorce
G C G
Betsy well satisfied said with a shout
D7 G
Good-bye you big lummox I'm glad you backed out
