Jerry Lee Lewis - Jackson Lyrics

We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
We been talkin' 'bout Jackson

Ever since the fire went out
I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around (yeah?)
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson, look out Jackson town

Well, go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health (hmm)
Go play your hand, you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself
Yeah, yeah, go to Jackson, but go comb that hair

I'm gonna snowball Jackson

Go ahead and see if I care

When I breeze inta that city, the people gonna stoop and bow (ha ha)
All them women gonna make me teach 'em what they don't know how
I'm goin' to Jackson, ya turn-a loose-a my coat
'Cause I'm goin' to Jackson

Goodbye, that's all she wrote

They'll laugh at you in Jackson (I doubt it)
And I'll be dancin' on a pony keg
They'll lead you 'round that town like a scalded hound
With your tail tucked between your legs
Yeah, yeah, yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
And I'll be waitin' there in Jackson behind my *Japan* fan

We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
We been talkin' 'bout Jackson ever since the fire went ou-ou-out
Go to Jackson and that's a natural fact
We're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back

We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout

We been talkin' 'bout Jackson

    Great duet! Like it better than the original.

  5. Bernadette Coombs

    @ENACODNOM I really do agree with you. Johnny & June's version is good but as in comparison, Jerry Lee & Linda Gail's version sounds better. As usual, Jerry Lee and Linda Gail are hard for any musician to beat!

    The Killer can really play his pumpin' piano. We saw him here in the early 70's and he put on a great show but cut it a little short because of health reasons I assume. I love his boogie beat in so many of his rockin songs. Jerry Lee, to me, can sing a ballad like no one else. I think his voice is just right for the romantic songs - especially country. I like the video his sister has in which she is showing how he's taught her to play in his style. It's on YouTube somewhere. Thanks. -Paula

    He married Myra Gale Brown( The daughter of his bassplayer J.W Brown). That was Jerrys third marrige. Married for 12 years! They got Phoebe who is with Jerry now as his "manager".

  8. Phil Silverman

    Oh could be right!

  9. gwaggli008

    is this the cover version of jackson- johnny cash?????

  10. flatroofer

    An analogue recording. So much better than CD.


    Better than Johnny & June!

  12. CriticalListener

    Not at all. The last I checked, tho, thirteen was one of the 'teens'. Younger than THAT is a "pre"--as in "before" teen-age child. And thirteen was young enough, which was why there was all the ruckus!

  13. robin haugsnes

    Hah, you're telling us he didn't mary Myra when she was 13 years old? XD

  14. CriticalListener

    He never had a pre-teen bride. Do your research, not just listen to rumors.

  15. firripsz

    His 13 y.o. (3rd?) bride was his cousin Myra.

  16. RockRobT01

    I thought Linda Gail Lewis was his pre-teen bride.
