Well now, they call me Coon Can Shorty
The man from Coon Can Land
Yeah now, they call me Coon Can Shorty
The man from Coon Can Land
Well, I'm known to play the man
Hoo-well-well, the game they call Coon Can

My dice won't pass
Cards it only game you see
I said, my dice won't pass
Cards is the only the only game you see
An ev'ry chump in town
Hoo-well-well, seems to fall out on me

My babe give me money
Coon Can Shorty is my name
I said, my babe give me money
Coon Can Shorty is my name
A-before I lose her money
Hoo-well, I will spread dueces until I begin

But someday my dice gon' pass
An my money gon' be on the wood
Hm-hm-um-well, my money gon' be on the wood
Any chump in town
Hoo-hoo-well, they ain't gon' be no good

Some say they will coon the devil
If you chain him down
Some said they will coon the devil
If you chain him down
But now you know how good his sound
Ooo-well-well, if you come in this town.
