The Electrified Donkey recorded by Johnny Horton written by Chris Eaton and Ferlin Husky
C Well I bought me a donkey about four foot tall
G7 To plough my cotton in the early fall He's running around it was an awful sin
C I had to build a fence to keep my donkey in I rigged up the wire with a battery charge
G7 To keep my donkey from a-running at large Inside this bin I turned him loose
G7 C Corralled by volts of electrified juice F Which way did my donkey go C If you see him let me know F I haven't seen my donkey since
G7 C He backed into that electrified fence Now the first time he backed up against it
G7 He threw back his ears and he had a fit He brayed real loud and he hit high gear
G7 C He jumped up into the stratosphere I just got word from Albuquerque
G7 A donkey up there was looking for work He's my donkey and his name is Jack
G7 C Oh how I wish he'd come on back Repeat #3 Now more word came from Palamar G7 A man up there was a-watching the stars While looking through his telescope C G7 C He nearly had himself a stroke He saw something riding up the rainbow trail G7 Two long ears and a cockabur tail This thing he saw when he informed the states
G7 C Was a donkey heading for the pearly gates Repeat #3
