Joel Rafael Band - Way over Yonder in the Minor Key

I lived in a place called Okfuskee
Had a little girl in a holler tree
I said, "Little girl, it's plain to see
That there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me"

She said, "It's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly"
Said little girly, that might be
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
No, there ain't nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek
To watch the frog eat the goggle eyed bee
Listen to the west wind whistle to the east
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

I said, "Little girl, won't you let me see?"
Way over yonder where the wind blows free
And nobody can see in our holler tree
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
No, there ain't nobody that can sing like me

Her mama took a switch from a cherry tree
And she laid it on the she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Now I have walked a long long ways
But I still look back to my tangle wood days
I've led lot of girls since then to stray
Saying, ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
No, there ain't nobody that can sing like me
