A bed five points, talkin’, daddy and me
Just one square away from old peach tree, peach tree
Possession’s nine points of the law, used to be
Five and nine are fourteen points and yet they took my man from me!
I know that I’d be satisfied
If I could grab a train and ride!
If I make and matter with no place to go
Just make me a pallet on your floor!
Well, give everybody my regards
I’m comin’ in if I have to ride the rods!
I’ll grab me an armful of train before you know
So make me a pallet on your floor!
Oh I’ll make me a pallet on your floor
I’ll make me a pallet on your floor
Now here’s one thing I want you to know
I’ll make me a little bitty pallet on your floor!
