Dirty Creek Lyrics:

(Written by John Martin)
Sores on my tongue, sores on my cheek
That's what I get for riding dirty creek

She can dance, she can sing
She can give you anything

Come on boys, lettin' ya know
If they're easy, lett'em go

(Written by George Lane)
Her current's strong, her current's swift
Beware her everlasting gift

Be careful what you ask for
You'll get that and a whole lot more

Go skip a stone, on down the creek
Be mindful of the things you seek

So now you know that you will pay
For what you do and what you say
