Wally Macnow Lyr Req: Lula Gal (Jawbone Walk) (12) RE: Lyr Req: Lula Gal (Jawbone Walk) 09 Sep 99


"Jawbone walk and Jawbone talk
Jawbone eat with a knife and fork
I left my Jawbone sittin on a fence
And I have not seen my Jawbone since"

These are zipper verses meaning they appear in a number of songs as the singer zips 'em in and out. Bob Gibson recorded a "Lula Gal" for Riverside about 40 years ago but it had verses like

"Oh my Lula Gal, don't you guess,
You'd better be makin' your wedding dress
Wedding dress, wedding dress
You'd better be makin' your wedding dress

Well it's already made. It's trimmed in red.
Trimmed all around with a golden thread
Golden thread, golden thread
Trimmed all around with a golden thread.

Hope that helps. I can probably post many of the rest of the verses if you want them. Problem is I don't know the tune that you have in mind.
