Guitar - Slowpawcaster 6 string
Amp - Marshall AS50D
Percussion - Beat Root stomper box

THE BALLAD OF FOXY BROWN

OVER HEDGE AND UNDER DALE
WHERE STIRRUP CUPS AND WHIPS PREVAIL.
A BAND OF HUNTERS WITH THEIR DOGS
TO CHASE OL’ FOXY THROUGH THE BOGS……..

CHORUS -

"YOU WON'T GET ME NOW..
YOU’LL NEVER HAVE MY TAIL!
YOU’RE THE ONES OUTSIDE THE LAW
I’LL SEE YOU ALL IN JAIL"


FOXY HEARS THE TRUMPET CALL,
GOOD HEAD START TO LEAD THEIR FALL,
THROUGH THE FIELDS INTO THE WOOD
FOXY LEADS THEM FROM HER BROOD.

WELL FOXY GOT AHEAD OF THE PACK
RUNNING FAST NOT LOOKING BACK.
WITH AGE OLD TRACKS TO GUIDE HER WAY
SHE’LL LIVE TO RUN ANOTHER DAY……………..

CHORUS

SLY OL’ FOXY HAD A TRICK
HER FATHER TAUGHT HER, REALLY SLICK!
SHE TOOK THEM DOWN A SECRET TRACK
LED THEM INTO A BOGGY PATCH.

WELL RIDERS, HORSES, DOGS FELL IN
SOAKED IN MUD THROUGH TO THEIR SKIN.
SHOUTING, YELPING, THEY WERE STUCK
…TAKE ‘EM HOURS TO GET OUT THAT MUCK!…

CHORUS

FOXY LAUGHED BACK TO HER GROUND
BUT REELED IN SHOCK AT WHAT SHE FOUND,
MEN WITH SPADES DUG OUT HER LAIR
SHE CRIED IN ANGUISH “THAT AIN’T FAIR !”

WELL FOXY MOVED INTO THE TOWN,
FOUND A NEW PLACE, SETTLED DOWN.
PEOPLE FED HER AND TOOK CARE
HER CUBS WERE SAFE AND WELL ROUND THERE..

CHORUS.

UNDER HEDGE AND OVER RAIL
WHERE MOTOR CARS AND STREETS PREVAIL
A BAND OF HUNTERS WITH THEIR GUNS
TO CHASE OL’ FOXY THROUGH THE RUNS

LIFE WAS GOOD UNTIL THE DAY
THE COUNCIL MEN CAME TO TAKE HER AWAY.
SO THE CHASE WAS ON AND THROUGH THE STREETS
FOLKS STILL HEAR OL’ FOXY SHRIEK…

………CHORUS x2
