Honeycomb
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


(Honeycomb)
(Honeycomb)

Well it's a darn good life
And it's kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee
And the bee made the honey
And the honeybee lookin' for a home
And they called it honeycomb
And they roamed the world and they gathered all
Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby's lips

Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb)
And the Lord said now that I made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And He made a little tree and I guess you heard
Oh, then well he made a little bird
And they waited all around till the end of Spring
Gettin' every note that the birdie'd sing
And they put 'em all into one sweet tome
For my Honeycomb

Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb)
And the Lord says now that I made a bird
I'm gonna look all round for a little ol' word
That sounds about sweet like "turtledove"
And I guess I'm gonna call it "love"
And He roamed the world lookin' everywhere
Gettin' love from here, love from there
And He put it all in a little ol' part
Of my baby's heart

Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone
And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb)

And the Lord said now that I made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And He made a little tree and I guess you heard
What then, well, he made a little bird
And they waited all around till the end of Spring
Gettin' every note that the birdie'd sing
And they put 'em all into one sweet tome
For my Honeycomb


Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby

Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life

@Michael Rodgers I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed your dad's music. I think of it as American skiffle

Michael Rodgers

@Annette Fluit No worries. I’m sorry for the loss of your father. Thanks for your kind words about my father.

Michael Rodgers

@Josoveys Jimmie Rodgers is/was my father. Mobsters did not beat him up. Yes, he was beaten by an off duty LAPD officer in a fit of road rage and it was covered up. It was a terrible occurrence in our family but dad went on to have a long and creative life passing at 87 on January 18, 2021. He was an amazing man and was loved by so many throughout the world. He is greatly missed.

Josoveys

Mobsters beat him causing severe head injury, police covered it up before he sued for 119 million i think. Just Wikipedia searcg his name, I'm paraphrasing cus it's been a year

WOW, that song sure brings back memories from when I was real young but remembered hearing my parents playing it on the radio in our house.

Shawn Patricks

This is my first time hearing Jimmie Rodgers, but I  have to say this man was way ahead of his time.
