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                G7             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
             C        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
   C                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
   C                  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
   C               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
      C                      G7     C
Was a donkey heading for the pearly gates
 
Repeat #3
