Lyrics

I lived in a place called okfuskee
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
I said, little girl, its plain to see,
Aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint nobody that can sing like me

She said its hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes, my little girly, that might be,
But there aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint nobody that can sing like me

[chorus:]
Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There aint nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the buckeye creek
To see the frog eat the goggle eye bee
To hear that west wind whistle to the east,
There aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint nobody that can sing like me

Oh my little girly will you let me see,
Where over yonder where the wind blows free
Nobody can see in our holler tree
And there aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint nobody that can sing like me

[chorus]

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
And laid it on to she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
But there aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint 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 girlies since then to stray
Saying, aint nobody that can sing like me
Aint nobody that can sing like me

[chorus x 2]

Aint nobody that can sing like me
