Burl Ives - Curry Road Lyrics




Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road
(Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road)

Constable give me water
Water I desire
Constable give me water
My inside's burning like fire

I was going to see my Matilda
To make Matilda my wife
Till some jealous fellow jumped me
And cut me with a sugarcane knife

Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road
(Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road)

Constable I'm a-dying
I can feel it in my soul
And I can feel my hands hand feet
Slowly growing cold

Evil man took my money
Won't you listen to my plea
Go and tell Matilda
About my tragedy

Tell Matilda that I love her
And tell her not to cry
Tell her that I'll wait for her
In the land beyond the sky

Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Going down Curry Road
Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road
(Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road)
(Pretty girl waitin' down Curry Road)
