What's that?
Hey, what are you guys drinking in those tall, purple glasses?
What is that, rot guts?
(Home brew) Tea?

Hey a little bit later on in the show
I'm going to do you a brand new song
That I wrote yesterday called San Quentin

I'd like to ask my wife, June Carter, come back
Come here June

Hey, I wonder, I wonder if we can get Carl Perkins out to help us with this tine
(He probably would, he would probably help us)
June and I have been singing this song, out version of a John Sebastian song
Darling companion

Darlin' companion, come on and give me understandin'.
And let me be your champion, a hand to hold your pretty hand in.
Darlin' companion, now you know you'll never be abandoned.
Love will always light our landin', I can depend on you.

Oh, a little saucy mare like you should have a steed.
Oh, a little bridlin' down from you is what I need.

Darlin' companion, now you know you'll never be abandoned.
Love will always light our landin', I can depend on you.

Darlin' companion, come on and give me understandin'.
As long as we keep laughin', bear in mind just what could happen.
Darlin' companion, I tell the mountains and the canyons,
Long as I got legs to stand on, I'm gonna stick by you.

Oh, a little saucy mare like you should have a steed.
Oh, a little bridlin' down from you is what I need.

Darlin' companion, I tell the mountains and the canyons,
Long as I got legs to stand on, I'm gonna stick by you.

Darlin' companion, I tell the mountains and the canyons,
Long as I got legs to stand on, I'm gonna stick by you.

Thank you very much
