Sh#tfire, give me a nickel
I'm goin down to Pappan's and get me an R.C. cola

Congo Road, the loneliest road I know
Congo Road, the loneliest road that I know
So come walk with me, down that Congo Road

Congo Road, the loneliest road I know
Congo Road, the loneliest road that I know
Yeah come walk with me, down that Congo Road - yeah

Yeah my brother used to tell me 'bout how much he could drink
Well my brother used to tell me, lord bout how much he could drink
Well I drink corn liquor for breakfast, I - I sip it from the kitchen sink 

Congo Road, the loneliest road you'll ever know
That Congo Road, the loneliest road you'll ever know
Yeah so walk with me, down that Congo Road - look out
Work it on out

There goes Janice Richey's house, right over there cross the top of the hill
See that white picket fence, that's where my dog lay man
He ate a whole milkman one time

Listen to me
I used to run up under the moonlight, lord underneath those shinin' stars, yes I did
I use to run up under the moonlight, underneath the shining stars, my converse tennis shoes I did
Well I might start out over in Benton, wind up up in Little Rock 

I used to wash my dishes, yeah but I never let em dry, lord that would be a sin
Yeah I used to wash my dishes, yeah I never let em dry, hell no
If you see that ghost on Congo, well you’ll know that I have died, yes you will

Congo Road, the loneliest road I'll ever know
So come walk with me, down that Congo Road, yeah
So come walk with me, down that Congo Road
