Spiff simultaneously plays banjo, harmonic, suitcase kick drum, shaker and sings.

lyrics

Girl I love lives on the farm
Two strong legs, just one arm
Won't do chores but sure can eat
Fork and spoon held with her feet

I got no money, got no job
I barely feed the hogs their slop
Hunting through the henhouse bottom to the top
Praying for that egg to drop

Gonna move to town, move to the city
I hear that the girls are pretty
Live life without a care a thousand feet up in the air
Smack dab in the middle of town
Living in a penthouse never touch ground, won't touch ground
Living in a penthouse can't touch ground

Ten miles out, ten miles back
Just to till the 'tater patch
I'm so tired when I get home
All I do is sit and moan

Got no time to get bored
Got too many goddamn chores
Only time when I sit down
Is when I milk the goddamn cow

Gonna move to town, move to the city
I hear that the girls are pretty
Live life without a care a thousand feet up in the air
Smack dab in the middle of town
Living in a penthouse never touch ground, won't touch ground
Living in a penthouse can't touch ground

Late at night, nothing to do
Play the banjo, tap my shoe
Only thing to do is sit
Rock my chair, chew and spit

I'm so tired when I get home
All I do is sit and moan
Things get tougher every day
If I don't leave I'll die this way

Gonna move to town, move to the city
I hear that the girls are pretty
Live life without a care a thousand feet up in the air
Smack dab in the middle of town
Living in a penthouse never touch ground, won't touch ground
Living in a penthouse can't touch ground

Smack dab in the middle of town
Living in a penthouse never touch ground
Living in a penthouse can't touch ground
