Sing A Song For Sick Spence


Sing a song for sick Spence. He's got a ways to go.

He fell and hurt his feelings on the road where no one goes no more.

He's hiding in the woodshed in the back of granny's place,

and calling it his sick bed where he's held up in disgrace.

Sing a song for sick Spence. His life is looming low.

Let me say in his defense he thought we wouldn't know this much.


When the girl was living he would often watch her work.

Her daddy owned the drug store where Spencer was the clerk for years.

One day he found the courage to ask her on a date.

She laughed. He was discouraged, and closed out rather late.


Sing a song for sick Spence. He's crying in his drink.

He's sitting on the picket fence without a thought to think. Whoa woe.


Floating down the river is a bloody paper cup.

He spys it from his sick bed, and knows his time is up real soon.


Sing a song for sick Spence. His pocket's full of rye.

The drugist's daughter's gone away, and he's left there to cry for life.
