The Cicely Blues
Lyrics
I'm leaving Cicely behind me
That's what I call this sleepy town
The 6:15 is primed and ready
This ole boy is city bound

With my coat in hand
Down to my last dime
On my way to fortune and fame
I'm gonna be a star
Move over old timer
Make way for this Johnny on the Spot


The record company seems eager to
Hear my song called The Cicely Blues
Not long after I began to sing
The man said, Boy, I've had enough of you
As he threw me out the door

With my coat in hand
Down to my last dime
On my way to fortune and fame
I'm gonna be a star
Move over old timer
Make way for this Johnny on the Spot

A record deal still somewhere waiting for
For this ole song
This ole song
For this ole song called The Cicely Blues
