Poor Boy-Riley Puckett
Riley Puckett, lead vocal and guitar in F position, standard tuning, Red Jones, harmony vocal

As I sit down at the gambling game
I could hardly play my hand
Thinking about that woman I love
Run away with another man

Run away with another man, poor boy
Run away with another man
Thinking about that woman I love
Run away with another man

I bought her everything she need
I dressed her up so fine
She caused me to work just forty long years
And I've still got ninety-nine

I still got ninety-nine, poor boy
I've still got ninety-nine
She caused me to work just forty long years
And I've still got ninety-nine

They took me down to the old jailhouse
The door, they slammed on me
"If you report that moonshine still
I'll see that you go free."

I'll see that you go free, poor boy
I'll see that you go free
If you report that moonshine still,
I'll see that you go free."

They took me back to the old courthouse
My name, they wrote it down
They turned me over to the deputy sheriff,
"You're now penitentiary bound."

"You're now penitentiary bound, poor boy,
You're now penitentiary bound."
They turned me over to the deputy sheriff,
"You're now penitentiary bound."
