lyrics

I swam through muddy waters
Just to get a look at that old man's daughter
As she danced across the garden
Her feet moved like a steaming freight liner

Come on, on down to Dixie
We've been going since we tore down the city
Come on now little lady
My banjo's running my feet are getting ready

There's no time to waste while we're young and
There's no time to waste since that day

Banjo broke my toe but I don't need it anymore
It's just slowing me down from moving my own way
So I go out on the street and I move my chicken feet
Dancing with my girl till morning meet

On down the Mississippi
We're cleaning up but we're just gonna get dirty
Ain't no street lights on the highway
But she'll light up the night make daytime come early

Ten fingers, nine toes
That's just the way it goes
Won't slow me down from moving my own way
So I go out on the street and I move my chicken feet
Dancing with my girl till morning meet
