(Had Not Been For) My Sally Jo
Doug Kershaw

I’m up to my rump in cypress stumps
Spanish moss and alligators
Tired of the stink of drying mink
And wild boars digging up my potatoes
www.cajunlyrics.com
Had not have been for my Sally Jo
I’d have left the bayou a long time ago
First time I went to the cowboy show
I fell in love with Sally Jo
www.cajunlyrics.com
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice,
She slapped my face but it hurt so nice
Had not have been for the cowboy show
I’d have never met my Sally Jo
www.cajunlyrics.com
I smiled real sweet at my Sally JO
I asked her to be my ma cher amie-o
Sally Jo said maybe so,
If I can take her from the bayou

Had not have been for the lack of dough
I’d have been married a long time ago
I worked for a year and a 16 months
I fished and I hunt and I saved a bunch
Take my money and away I go
Up the river to my Sally Jo
www.cajunlyrics.com
Now that I got a lot of dough
I’m gonna marry my Sally Jo
www.cajunlyrics.com
I stuffed my money in a gunny sack
Laying by my feet in the bottom of the pirogue
Water leaking from a leaky crack
Sank my boat to the bottom of the bayou
www.cajunlyrics.com
Had not have been for the leaky crack
I’d have never lost my gunny sack
www.cajunlyrics.com
Now I’m up to my rump in cypress stumps
Spanish moss and alligators
And I’m back to the stink of drying mink
And wild boars digging up my potatoes
www.cajunlyrics.com
Had not have been for the hole in my pirogue
I’d have been married to Sally Jo
www.cajunlyrics.com
Well I’m up to my rump in cypress stumps
Spanish moss and alligators
Back to the stink of drying mink
And wild boars digging up my potatoes
