      Bobby Bare - Paul Música y Letra

      Well. He rode through the woods on a big blue ox
      He had fists as hard as choppin' blocks
      Five hundred pounds and nine feet tall,
      That's Paul.
      Talk about working when he swung his ax
      You could hear it ring for a mile and half
      He'd yell timber and down she'd fall
      For Paul.
      Talk about drinkin' that man's so mean
      That he'd never drink nothin' but kerosene
      A five gallon can is a little bit small
      For Paul.
      Talk about women that man's so lusty
      Needs a woman ever hour just to keep from gettin' rusty
      Young ones run and the old ones crawl
      To Paul.
      Talk about tough well he once had a fight
      With a thunderstorm on a cold dark night
      I ain't sayin' who won but it don't storm at all round here
      Thanks to Paul.
      He was ninety years old when he said with a sigh
      Said I think I'm gonna lay right down and die
      'Cause sunshine and sorrow I've seen it all
      Says Paul.
      Says there ain't no man alive can kill me
      Ain't no woman left can thrill me
      And I think a heaven just might be a ball
      Says Paul.
      So he died and we cried.
      It took eighteen men just to bust that ground
      Took three or four more just to lower him down
      Then we covered him up and we figured that was all
      For Paul.
      But late one night the trees started shaking
      And the dogs started barking and the earth started quaking
      And out of the ground with the hi ye all
      Came Paul.
      Well he shook the dirt from off his clothes
      He scratched his ass and wiped his nose
      You know being dead wasn't no fun at all
      Says Paul.
      He said now up in heaven they got harps on their knees
      They got clouds and wings but they got no trees
      I don't think that's much of a heaven at all
      Says Paul.
      So he jumps on his ox with a fare thee well
      He said I'll find out if they got trees in hell
      And he rode away and that was all we ever seen
      Of Paul.
      But the next time you hear a timber yell
      That sounds like it's comin' from the pits of hell
      Then a boomin' laugh and a ghostly wail
      Like somebody choppin' on the devil's tail.
      Then a shout and a call a crash and a fall
      That ain't no mortal man at all
      That's just Paul...
