Hand Me Down My Walking Cane

Hand Me Down My Walking Cane

Chorus:
Hand me down my walking cane,
Hand me down my walking cane.
Hand me down my walking cane,
I’m gonna leave on the midnight train,
All my sins are taken away, taken away.

I got drunk and landed in jail,
I got drunk and landed in jail.
I got drunk and landed in jail,
Had no one for to go my bail,
All my sins are taken away, taken away. (Chorus)

If I should die in Tennessee,
If I should die in Tennessee.
If I should die in Tennessee,
Send my bones back C.O.D.
All my sins are taken away, taken away. (Chorus)

Hand me down my bottle of corn,
Hand me down my bottle of corn.
Hand me down my bottle of corn,
I’ll get drunk as sure as you’re born,
All my sins are taken away, taken away. (Chorus)
