  • Julie catch a rabbit by his tail
    Come back step, like to walk on air
    Get back home where you belong
    And don't you run off no more

    Don't hang your head and let the two-time roll
    Grass shack nailed to a pine wood floor
    Ask the time? Baby I don't know
    Come back later, gonna let it show

    And I say row, Jimmy row
    Gonna get there?
    I don't know
    Seems a common way to go
    Get down and row, row, row
    Row, row

    Here's a half a dollar if you dare
    Double twist when you land on air
    Look at Julie down below
    The levee doin' the do-pas-o

    And I say row, Jimmy, row
    Gonna get there?
    I don't know
    Seems a common way to go
    Get down and row, row, row
    Row, row

    Broken heart don't feel so bad
    Ain't got much of what you thought you had
    Rock your baby to and fro
    Not too fast and not too slow

    And I say row, Jimmy, row
    Gonna get there?
    I don't know
    Seems a common way to go
    So get down and row, row, row
    Row, row

    That's the way it's been in town
    Ever since they brought the jukebox down
    Broken hearts don't buy no more
    Not the way that it's done before

    And I say row, Jimmy, row
    Gonna get there?
    I don't know
    Seems a common way to go
    So get down, row, row, row
    Row, row

    So I say row, Jimmy, row
    Gonna get there?
    I don't know
    Seems a common way to go
    So get down, row, row, row
    Row, row

    So get down, row, row, row
    Row, row
