Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women

Carnival came to this rural town
And every fool wanna lay his money down
We got a Ferris wheel, games of chance,
tunnel of love, pure romance.
Men will believe in what they see
Put it on a poster they will believe
Everybody wants to hear the bearded lady sing
This sideshow's got everything

We got: Learned pigs Fireproof women
Everybody pay a dollar to see 'em
Got a piece of the one true cross
Got the bones of a union boss

Now Jake-leg Chester and Bootleg Sam
Were working at the carnival and they had a plan
Saturday night when the tent was full
They were gonna rob the carnival
They would grab the cash, jump a train
And never come back to this town again
They would hide in the bushes till they heard the bell
Grab the cash and run like hell.

From those: learned pigs Fireproof women
Everybody pay a dollar to see 'em
Got a piece of the one true cross
Got the bones of a union boss

Now the beard lady was still singin a song
When the Mississippi freight train came along
Jake-leg Chester grabbed the cash and ran
As Bootleg held a gun on that ticket man
They ran for the tracks but they missed the rail
The dog-faced boy was still chasing his tail
Stashed the cash and paid the cost
They hid it with the bones of the Union Boss.

Instrumental

Now they never found the money and I know it's a fact
That they took those boys away and they ain't comin' back
Sherriff came around a-lookin' for the dough
And I, well I hid down in my bedroll
Well I left that town without thinkin' twice
I found my own way to paradise
Bought myself a truck, a small sideshow
And every single summer I hit the road

With my: learned pigs Fireproof women
Everybody pay a dollar to see 'em
Got a piece of the one true cross
Got the bones, the bones, of a union boss
