Joe Val Bluegrass Festival Valentine Waltz
JOE VAL BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL VALENTINE WALTZ*
(tune: just like "Kentucky Waltz", only different)
Sally-Jo, be my Joe Val--entine, N' heal my hard hearted toy heart.
Little darlin', close by, pal of mine, Please say we never shall part.
Pearly Blue, Ellen Smith, Linda Lou, And the girl in the blue velvet band
Will be used to be's, while in old Tennessee, We trace valentine letters in sand
Sally Jo, be my Joe Val--entine, I wanna roll in my sweet baby's arms
I'm desperate as little John Hardy, In a village or homestead or farm
Those beautiful, beautiful brown eyes, Let those brown eyes smile at me
I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes, While she thinks of East Tennessee
Sally Jo, be my Joe Val--entine, Beause nobody's love is like mine
Next Sunday darling's my Birthday, In the holler where the sun never shines
Katy Hill, Sally Ann, Pretty Polly, And the girl with the real dreadful snake
--Are nothing but duds to this Tennessee stud, Sugar coated and left on a plate.
Sally Jo, be my Joe Val--entine, And I’ll work on a building for you
If my 9 pound hammer’s too heavy, A stockade in Columbus will do
For you, I’d dig a hole in the meadow, Eat groundhog and boil a squirrel
In the pines, down the road, in the holler, We’ll be sitting on top of the world
Sally Jo, be my Joe Val--entine, Because all I ever loved was you
A hundred years from now I won't be crying, & I won't have them Blue Ridge Mt. Blues
I'm using my Bible for a road map,'cause my walkin' shoes don't fit me any more
& I'm tryin' to find your Blue Ridge cabin home, where the sun forever shines in your back door.
spoken: --Think about it, darlin'...
