Listen everybody from here and far
If you want to know just who we are
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
Now if you like the way we play
Listen while we try to say
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
All night long
We sing this song
If you get this song
You can't go wrong, and how
We'll make you loose, we'll make you tight
Make you shake it 'til broad daylight
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee

SOLO

Now we never do brag, never do boast
Played this tune from coast to coast
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
Now if you like this tune, think it's fine
Sit right down and drop a line
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
And I'll declare
You'll get it there
And if you have
Some time to spare, somewhere
Some time we're down your way
We'll drop in and spend the day
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee

SOLO w/SCAT

Now some want to know just what we've got
Got good hokum and serve it hot
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
Now we ain't good lookin' and we don't dress fine
Way we whip it, it's a hangin' crime
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
If you see me stealin'
Don't tell on me
Just stealin' back to
My used to be, and how
We never have one gal at a time
Always have seven, eight or nine
Eagle ridin' papas, from Tennessee
