Potato's In The Paddy Wagon Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, gotta get her outta there,
Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, mama says it just ain’t fair.

One night mama went to fetch us up a sweet potato, fell down the cellar stairs,
Stork dropped in while she was on the floor, so my sister was born down there.
Daddy says this'n will be nothin' but a misery, never will be worth a damn,
But mama just loved her little sweet potato baby, with a face like a parboiled yam.



Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, gotta get her outta there,
Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, mama says it just ain’t fair.

Potato grew up to be as pretty as a peach, in her calico and honey yellow curls,
Went to the apple cider ball at the armory with all the other ripe and ready girls.
Sheriff Dan Pike, picked Potato for the polka, but she spurned him with a fiddle de-dee,
And before she could turn around and find another partner, Sheriff took her into custody.

Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, gotta get her outta there,
Come on boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, mama says it just ain’t fair.

Mama'n' daddy put together quite a little posse countin’ me and Jack and cousin Will,
We all hopped into the old Chevy pickup and we caught ‘em at the top of the hill,
Daddy took his Remington and shot away the lock, for to set his little darlin’ free,
But Potato said, “Daddy, shut the gol-dern door, Sheriff wants to marry me!”

Let’s go boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, guess we better leave her there,
Let’s go boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, mama says it’s more than fair,
Let’s go boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, guess we better leave her there,
Let’s go boys, Potato’s in the paddy wagon, mama says it’s more than fair,
Mama says it’s more than fair
Mama says it’s more... than fair!
