Please Don't Play Red River Valley

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash: I see you got yourself a brand new harmonica
June Carter: Yeah.
June: Mail-ordered from the Spiegel catalogue
Johnny: I hope you learn to play like Lonnie Glossom
Both: And while you’re at it learn a verse or two of Red River Valley
Johnny: Oh My Darling, Clementine, and Salty Dog

Both: Oh, but please don't play Red River Valley
How about Polly Wolly Doodle All Day
Johnny: The only song I ever did learn to play on my 2 dollar 98 cent harmonica
That I got from Wayne Raney
Both: In Clint, Texas C-L-I-N-T Clint, Texas was Red River Valley
Johnny: Then she said farewell to my French harp and me

Johnny: Well, you're doing pretty durn good on your new harmonica
But we ought to learn about one more tune you know
June: Yeah.
You see you hold it like you was eating a handful of popcorn
And sometimes you suck in and sometimes you blow

Both: Oh, but please don't play Red River Valley
How about Polly Wolly Doodle All Day
Johnny: The only song I ever learned to play on my 2 dollar 98 cent harmonica
That I got from Wayne Raney
Both: In Clint, Texas C-L-I-N-T Clint, Texas was Red River Valley
June: It ain’t on here Johnny: Then she said farewell to my French harp and me
