raise a ruckus lyrics – old crow medicine show

well well well

[chorus:]
come along little children come along
while the moon is shining bright
now get on board going down the river float
we gonna raise a ruckus tonight

well my old mistress promised me
raise a ruckus tonight
that when she died she’d set me free
raise a ruckus tonight
well she lived so long that her head got bald
raise a ruckus tonight
i finally had to kill her with a white oak maul

well well well

[chorus]

well our old lady gets mad at me
raise a ruckus tonight
when i won’t drink at the india tea
raise a ruckus tonight
well now she is good and then she is bad
raise a ruckus tonight
boys she’s evil like a devil when she gets mad

well

[chorus]

well raise a ruckus tonight
raise a ruckus tonight
now we gonna raise a ruckus tonight
raise a ruckus tonight

well well well

[chorus]

well raise a ruckus, raise a ruckus
raise a ruckus tonight
get on board going down the river float
we gonna raise a ruckus tonight
