AnneMC Lyr Add: Doc's Day (Old Crow Medicine Show) (2) Lyr Add: Doc's Day - OCMS 08 Jul 14


This is from Old Crow Medicine Show's newly released CD 'Remedy' .
I need some help with these 2 lines in the last verse, don't think I have it correct:
Stage version with OCMS here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHb2in5-3W0 but I'm listening to my iTunes purchased track.

"Now we're pickin' like a couple of native sons
And that ol' hill billy he sure gone dancing away"

DOC'S DAY   (Old Crow Medicine Show)

We were rollin' down King Street, a quarter to twelve
And we found a little corner to play
So we plugged in our guitars, tightened up the drum
And hollered out Hey Hey Hey
Then this old hill billy with a cheek full o' chaw
Rambled on over to our tip jar
He said I like what I see but it's not like I saw
Way back in ol' Doc's Day

He said : If you wanna rock, listen to Doc
If you want the girls, better pick like Merle
Cos them high country blues still blow all the women away
So beat on the corner with your flat top box
Pick on the banjo - boys don't stop !
Give me old time music, Lord make it hot
Just like it was in Doc's day

Well that old hill billy tugged on his whiskers,
Spat a little juice from his jaw
He said "Back in Deep Gap, I'm a- tellin' you Mister
We'd be rockin' from dusk till dawn.
Singing "Mama Don't Allow", and "A Bottle of Wine"
"Dark as a Dungeon" and "Way Down in the Mine"
If you can do like that, boys, I'll throw you a dime
Just like in ol' Doc's Day

If you wanna rock, listen to Doc
If you want the girls, better pick like Merle
Cos them high country blues still blow all the women away
So beat on the corner with your flat top box
Pick on the banjo - boys don't stop
Give me old time music, Lord make it hot
Just like it was in Doc's day

So we sold our amps, and pawned our drums
Now we're pickin like a couple of native sons
And that ol' hill billy he sure gone dancing away
Lord the crowds all packed and the cheering keen
Leaning in close to hear the banjo ring
And everybody raised their voice to sing
Just like in ol' Doc's day
