"Oh, Sammie, where you been so long?
Oh, Sammie, where you been so long?"
"I been to the West, and I'm going back, I guess."
"Oh, honey, let me beg you, please don't go.
Oh, honey, let me beg you, please don't go."
"I been to the West, and I'm going back, I guess."
"Oh, honey, let me beg you, please don't go."

SOLO (Verse plus 1/2)

See me comin' in, with my twenty-dollar bill
Then it's, "Sammie, where you been so long?"
Oh it's, "Sammie, where you been so long?"
"I've been to the West, and I'm going back I guess."
"Oh, honey, let me beg you, please don't go.
Oh, honey, let me beg you, please don't go."

SOLO (Finishes verse and starts next)

For my whiskey bill is due, and my board bill is too,
And my last gold dollar done and gone
And my last gold dollar done and gone
For my whiskey bill is due, and my board bill is too,
And my last gold dollar done and gone
