Sioux City Sue

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few"
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue
The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do"

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue
I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town

I'm up in the world,
But I'd give the world to be where I used to be,
A heavenly nest,
Where I rest the best,
Means more than the world to me.

It's only a shanty
In old Shanty Town
The roof is so slanty it touches the ground.
But my tumbled down shack by an old railroad track,
Like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back.

I'd give up a palace if I were a king.
It's more than a palace, it's my everything.
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
In a shanty in old Shanty Town.

Lyrics by Joe Young, Little Jack Little, and John Siras.
Recorded by Ted Lewis and His Band; Johnny Long; many others.
