Dixon and Johnson

Dixon and Johnson went riding out one day,
Dixon and Johnson went riding out one day,
They rode up on a mountain ten thousand miles away
Oh Lord, I've been all around the world.

They rode up on a woman, as cold as cold or more,
They rode up on a woman, as cold as cold or more,
He wrapped her in his coat and set her up behind him,
Oh Lord, I've been all around this world.

Dixon being wearied lie down to take a rest, (2x)
Up stepped this cruel old woman and stabbed him in the breast
Oh Lord etc.

She taken him to her parlor and cooled him with her fan
She whispered low in her mother's ear, I love this gamblin' man

Oh woman, oh woman, now see what you have done,
You've killed your bravest soldier, and liable to be hung,

They taken her out on the mountain and told her not to run
All they gave to her was a pistol and a gun,

The railroad is finished, the cars are on the track,
Trouble will drive a boy from home, but money will bring him back

From Ozark Folksongs, Randolph
Collected from Miss Mary Drain, Ark. 1941
Note: A considerably degenerate version of the Three Butchers:
the only one I've encountered where the lady wasn't stripped
naked with her hair pinned to the ground. RG
