Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key
Billy Bragg Lyrics


I lived in a place called Okfuskee
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
I said, little girl, it's plain to see
Ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

She said it's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes my little girly that might be
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek
To see the frog eat the goggle-eye bee
To hear the west wind whistle to the east
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Oh my little girly will you let me see
Way over yonder where the wind blows free
Nobody can see in our holler tree

And there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
And laid it on the she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Now I have walked a long long ways
And I still look back to my Tanglewood days
I've led lots of girls since then to stray
Saying ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Your dad 💘 loves you. I don't get to see my daughter. I say a prayer of thanks for her protection, her well-being and all that entails, her safety and her genuine happiness every night. It is so sad and its not fair but one day you'll get to see him more and more as i believe i will get to see my daughter. It is so beautiful that you sing this song every day for him. So when you do see him you'll sing for him! Should i learn this beautiful song for my daughter?

@The Antichrist agreed just should have said I'm praying for you not go sign up for my religion Jesus wants to talk with you

The Antichrist

@jimmy timmy247 they are charlatans preying on the weak and vulnerable. It's disgusting.

The Antichrist

Sorry about your father man, I know what it's like going threw that shit it's indescribable especially if you guys were close. I always wonder what could have been done differently to have prevented it.
