lyrics

I’ve been knockin’ on your door for an hour or more
Oh honey, won't you let me in?
I’ve got some wine and fine moonshine
So won't you drown with me in sin?

I can't wait no more to make you mine
Cos the one thing I ain't got's more time
I ain't long for this world
I don't think you care

One, two, three, let's go!
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut

Well, I ain't eaten in a week or more
And now I'm thin as a barber's cat
Just a skeleton preserved by rum
With a cowboy shirt hung on my back

Barrel fever buzzin' in my brain
I hear the reaper calling out my name
I ain't long for this world
I don't think you care

One, two, three, let's go!
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut

My Jezebel, I'm drunk as hell
The devil’s by my side
Oh won't you shake your bones with me
Once more before I die?

Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
Do the boneyard strut
