Black Jack David

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family, Johnny Cash:
Black Jack David came a riding through the woods
And he sang so loud and gaily
Made the hills all around him ring
And he charmed the heart of a lady
And he charmed the heart of a lady

Johnny:
Would you forsake your husband and baby
To go with another man
Would you forsake your husband and baby
For the love of Black Jack David
Carter Family: For the love of Black Jack David

June:
Yes, I’d forsake my husband and baby
To go with another man
Yes, I’d forsake my husband and baby
For the love of Black Jack David
Carter Family: For the love of Black Jack David

Carter Family:
She pulled off her high-heel shoes
They were made of Spanish leather
She put on her low-heel shoes
They both rode off together
They both rode off together

June: Last night I slept on a feather bed
By the side of my husband and baby
Tonight I ride in the cold, cold wind
By the side of Black Jack David
Carter Family: By the side of Black Jack David

Carter Family, Johnny Cash:
Black Jack David came a riding through the woods
And he sang so loud and gaily
Made the hills all around him ring
And he charmed the heart of a lady
And he charmed the heart of a lady
