The Songs He Sang
Saturday Night/True Love On My Mind: Lyrics
As performed by Cisco Houston
Saturday night and Sunday, too True love on my mind Monday mornin' early and soon And the boss man's got me gwine Redbird sittin' on a sycamore limb Singin' out his soul And a big black snake crawled up that tree And swallowed that poor boy whole Bluejay pulled a four horse plow Sparrow why can't you? Because my legs is little and long And they might get broke in two Wild geese flyin' through the air Through the sky of blue They're now a-floatin' where the south-wind blows So why not me and you? You-oh-oh-oh-oh
Boy, a touching performance of what is probably an old slave song. Cisco just sounds great!
