E position pitched at F

[Introduction, instrumental]

[Instrumental verse]

Well, whilst we here tryin' to have our fun, s'posin' the law jumped up and said "Nobody run!"
Well you know I'm long gone, from Kentucky, long gone and then got away lucky
'Cus I'm gonna leave Seguin, I'll be just like a submarine

Well my woman poked her head out from way under the bed. She said "Please don't let 'em kill Mr. Little Hat dead"
I said "No use to worryin' sweet mama, ain't gonna be here long"
Don't waznn let you sing this worried song
'Cus I'm gonna leave Seguin, I'll be just like a submarine.

Well I once have knowed the man they call him Austin Jack
Stop and put the bloodhounds right on my track
Course the blindest[1] could not catch my scent
Do you know they couldn't tell where the Little Hat went
'Cus I left Seguin, people I's just like a submarine

[Instrumental verse]

Well yon' come the Santa Fe just puffin' and flyin'
Oughta seen me when I reached up and really caught them blind
They said "There's another long gone, from Kentucky"
Long gone and then got away lucky
'Cus you left Seguin, you's just like a submarine

[Instrumental verse]

I'm gonna sing this song, ain't gonna sing no more
[Instrumental lines, x 3]
'Cus I'm leavin' San Antoine, I declare I ain't comin' here no more

Well I don't play the dozen and neither the ten
'Cus she keep on talkin' I'll ease ya in
Well you keep on talkin' 'till you make me mad
Well I tell you 'bout the mother that your father had
'Cus I don't play the dozen, I declare, man, and neither the ten

[Instrumental verse]

[Outro]
