Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key - Lyrics

I lived in a place called Okfuskee
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
I said, little girl, it's plain to see
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

I know it's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes, my 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

We walked down by the buckeye creek
To see the frog eat the goggle eye bee
To hear that west wind whistle to the east
Hey 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

Oh my little girly, will you let me see
Way over yonder where the wind blows free?
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

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
Laid it on to she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
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

Now I have walked a long, long ways
And I still look back to my tanglewood days
I've led lots of girls since then to stray
Sayin' 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

Writer(s): Billy Bragg, Woody Guthrie
