Angie (& the Hambone)


Words and music by Nick Vander Vliet

I got a girl hot as a smoking pistol
I got a girl that won't leave me alone
I got a girl with a temper of the devil
she hits me cross the face with an old hambone

Angie on account of how you do things
maybe you should get a goin' home
gravy is not the train that you rode in on
save your reputation now please go

We was the gang that used to hang together
Billy the Fridge, Chuck Wagon and I
we was the gang that used to hang together
till we all got sick of Angie who was quick to black an eye

With a hambone, it was always in the kitchen
hambone, it was proof that pigs can fly
hambone, she was always on a mission with that
hambone, our every word was followed by

Up on the hill, that's where I left my Angie
down into town is where I'm looking for a girl
one that is made of sugar cane and maple
when I finally find that girl that Angie steps into my world again

Angie on account of how you do things
maybe you should get a goin' home
gravy is not the train that you rode in on
save your reputation now please go
please go
please go
Angie have mercy on my soul
