The Lyrics

I'm a beginner here folks, so pleeze go easy on me...:-)
Spouse Who's a Roving Scum

I had me a spouse in New Orleans
I call a rovin' scum
He's humped around with many a poor gal
And dang! I know I'm one!

His mother was a jailer
She howled out cussin' screams
His father was an Amway man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thang that ambler needs
Is a beercase and a hump!
And then he's never satisfied
He's such a big ol' skunk!

(organ solo)

Y'all go tell yer children
Don't go doin' what I done
Spend yer life in pains and mis'ry
With a spouse who's a rovin' scum!

He had one foot in the ladie's room
The other on a train
He's comin' back to New Orleans
To cuss at me agin!

I had a spouse in New Orleans
I call a rovin' scum
And he's messed around with many a poor gal
And dang! I know I'm one!
