Story

Dan and I have had so much fun singing and playing this song together.  It’s always a crowd pleaser, and Dan has the perfect Johnny Cash voice.  Everybody loves Johnny and June!  Steve gets a chance to shine on upright bass, as well as both Mike and Dan on electric guitar.

 

Lyrics

Well, we got married in a fever

Hotter than a pepper sprout

We’ve been talkin’ ‘bout Jackson

Ever since the fire went out

I’m going to Jackson

Gonna mess around

Yeah, I’m going to Jackson

Look out Jackson town

Well go on down to Jackson

Go ahead and wreck your health

Go make your plan you big talkin’ man

Make a big fool of yourself

Yeah go to Jackson, go comb your hair

I’m gonna snowball Jackson

See if I care

Well when I breeze into that city

People gonna stoop and bow

Ha!

All them women gonna make me

Teach ‘em what they don’t know how

I’m going to Jackson

Ya turn loose of my coat

Yeah I’m going to Jackson

Goodbye that’s all she wrote

They’ll laugh at you in Jackson

And I’ll be dancing on a pony keg

They’ll lead you ‘round town like a scalded hound

With your tail up between your legs

Yeah go to Jackson, you big talkin’ man

And I’ll be waiting in Jackson behind my Japan fan

Now we got married in a fever

Hotter than a pepper sprout

We’ve been talkin’ ‘bout Jackson

Ever since the fire went out

We’re going to Jackson

And that’s a fact

Yeah we’re going to Jackson

Ain’t never coming back

We got married in a fever

Hotter than a pepper sprout

We’ve been talkin’ ‘bout Jackson

Ever since the fire went ou-ou-ou-ou-out
