LYRIC

Two In The Middle

Coffee grows on white oak tree
The river flows with brandy-o
I lost the sweetest gal there is
As sweet as ‘lasses candy-o

There’s two in the middle and I can’t dance, Josie
Two in the middle and I can’t get around
There’s two in the middle and I can’t dance, Josie
Hello, Sailor Brown
There’s two in the middle and I can’t dance, Josie
Two in the middle and I can’t get around
There’s two in the middle and I can’t dance, Josie
Hello, Sailor Brown

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Gone about ten thousand miles lookin’ for my gal
And she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes, she’s gone to come no more
She’s gone on that ragin’ canal
Yes, she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes, she’s gone to come no more
I bid her my last farewell

Broke my heart when I lost my Josie
Broke my heart when she turned me down
Broke my heart when I lost my Josie
Hello, Sailor Brown
Broke my heart when I lost my Josie
Broke my heart when she turned me down
Broke my heart when I lost my Josie
Hello, Sailor Brown

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Gone about ten thousand miles lookin’ for my gal
And she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes, she’s gone to come no more
She’s gone on that ragin’ canal
Yes, she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes, she’s gone to come no more
I bid her my last farewell

Yes, she’s gone, gone, gone
Yes, she’s gone to come no more
I bid her my last farewell
