Mickey Newbury - "Apples Dipped In Candy" lyrics

Well apples dipped in candy
Sweet potato wine
One is for you belly
And one is for your mind
Day off on Sunday
When the rent is not behind
Well thats just the way it goes

Lazy Mississippi movin' mighty slow
Like that ole blackbird walkin' down the road
Able when the times get rough
To just pick up and go
Further on down the line

Rich man Poor man Begger or Thief
First Lawd the first ones gets you down the road
Well the others get you grief
The last one gets you 90 days
Of cotton-pickin' peas
Down on the Captains farm

We got apples dipped in candy

I tell ya now
Rich man Poor man Begger or Thief
The first ones gets you down the road
Well the others get you grief
The last one gets you 90 days
Of cotton-pickin' peas
Down on the East End farm

Know what I'm talkin' about Joe'

Well thats the way it goes
