GUEST,999 Lyr Req/Add: 42 Barrels of Oil a Day (23) RE: Lyr Req/Add: 42 Barrels of Oil a Day 14 Mar 13


Forty-Two by Rusty Draper


As forty-two barrels of beautiful oil.
I've been engaged for quite a spell
She's a patient gal little Annabelle.
But I'd better quit while I'm ahead
She might marry-up with another instead.
I'll say "Annabelle let's you an' me hitch."
An' I know she will 'cause she wants to be rich.

[Chorus:]
I get forty-two barrels of oil a day.
Forty-two barrels an' man that ain't hay!
I look out my window an' what do I see?
An oil well a-pumpin' more money for me.

[Verse 4:]
I went to the bank to start an account
They asked me "How much?"
I said "Name the amount."
I brought it in boxes bags an' sacks
Jars an' cases an' even in stacks.
But to be perfectly honestly frank
I had enough money to start my own bank.
Well they counted an' counted an' finally said
"We'll come to you the next time instead."

[Chorus:]
Forty-two barrels of oil a day.
Forty-two barrels an' man that ain't hay!
I look out my window an' what do I see?
An oil well a-pumpin' more money for me.

[Short instrumental break.]

[Verse 5:]
Now I know that money isn't ever'thing
It can buy you a car an' a big diamond ring.
It can get you a saddle that's mounted in gold
But can't give you love to have an' to hold.
An' when you're alone on a cold winter's night
You can't put your arms around [it] tight.
So I'm mighty proud that Annabelle's true
When she looks in my eyes an' says "I love you."

[Outro:]
Forty-two barrels of oil a day.
Forty-two barrels an' man that ain't hay!
I look out my window an' what do I see?
Money money money money for me!
