Lyrics:We can share the women
We can share the wine
We can share what we got of yours
we done shared all of mine

Keep a rolling
Just a mile to go
Keep on rolling, my
old buddy
You're moving much too slow

I just jumped the watchman
outside the fence
Took his ring, four bucks in change
Now ain't that heaven

My old buddy you're moving much too

We can share the women
we can share the wine
