Cabbage Head
by Dr. John

Last night I come home, tired as a man can be
I saw a mule in my stable where my mule is supposed to be
I said wake up Sally, explain this stuff to me
Whose mule is that in my stable where my mule is supposed to be

She said hush your mouth you're talking real silly
Open up your eyes and see, that ain't nothing but a milk cow that the farmer man left to me
You I walk all over the world to the Gulf of Mexico
But that's the first time I've ever seen a milk cow with a saddle on its back before

Next night when I come home, tired as a man could be
I saw a hat on my dresser drawer, where my hat is supposed to be
I said wake up Sally, explain this stuff to me
Whose hat is that on my dresser where my hat is supposed to be

She said hush your mouth you're talking real silly
Open up your eyes and see, that ain't nothing but an old cabbage that the grocer man left for me
You I walk all over the world to the Gulf of Mexico
I ain't seen no cabbage with a hat on his head before

The next night when I come home tired as a man could be
I see some guy on the front porch where I am supposed to be
I said wake up Sally, explain this mess to me
Who is this guy on my front porch where I am supposed to be

She said now hush your mouth you're acting real ignorant
Open up your eyes and see, that ain't nothing but a shadow, you're always accusing me
Now I've been all over this world, down to the Gulf of Mexico
But I ain't never stumbled over a shadow in my whole life before
