Sleepy Eyed John Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Tex Atchinson
C Well away down yonder on the Candy Creek G7 I whittled out a fiddle from a wagon seat C I tuned up my fiddle and I rosined my bow G7 C I play a little tune wherever I go
Sleepy eyed John better get your britches on G7 Sleepy eyed John better tie your shoe C Sleepy eyed John you better get your bitches on G7 C Try to get to heaven fore the devil gets to you
Well sleepy eyed John he stole a goose G7 The goose it flopped but couldn't get loose C Said John to the goose if you don’t be still G7 C I'm gonna miss my supper down in Candyville
Well sleepy eyed John he had a wooden leg G7 Wadn't nothin' but a little wooden peg C With one shoe off and one shoe on G7 C He'd do the double shuffle till the cows come home
Well I got 20 dollars for to build a fence G7 I took my money and I ain't worked since C I sold my buggy and I sold my plow G7 C I wouldn't take a dollar for my journey now
Over the hickory and down in the pine G7 The raccoon left and the old hound whined C John said sic’em and the raccoon left G7 C They crossed Green River in a minute and a half
