Wake up, wake up darlin Corey, what makes you sleep so sound? Those highway robbers are comin', gonna tear your steel house down. Wake up, wake up darlin corey, and go get me my gun. Said I ain't no man for trouble, but I'll die before I run. First time, that I saw darlin corey, had a wine glass in her hand. She was Drinkin down her troubles, with a low down sorry man. Last night, as I lay on my pillow, last night as I lay on my bed, Last night as I lay on my pillow, I dreamed darlin Corey was dead. Now go, dig a hole in the meadow, and it's go dig a hole in the ground, Let's go dig a hole in the meadow, gonna lay darlin Corey down.
