Merle Haggard and Leona Williams - The Bull and the Beaver Lyrics

 

Merle:

You’ve got the bull of the wood girl

Leona:

You’ve got the beaver from Missouri boy

Merle:

We can’t get nothin’ done on this C.B.

You’ve got the bull of the woods

Leona:

You’ve got the beaver from Missouri

Both:

We oughta get together you and me

Log on to hide ad.

Leona:

If you’ll give me your ten-twenty

I’ll be glad to give you mine

And I’ll put this eighteen wheeler on the side

Merle:

Well it won’t be hard top back it

Now babe I’m right behind you

Just put them air brakes on and let ‘er slide

Merle:

Well if you got a runnin’ buddy

Just let ‘er sleep awhile

Ten-four, come back, I’m waitin’ on your call

Leona

Hey you sound like a keeper

And I know I’ve got a nifty sleeper

With sexy lights and mirrors on the wall

Both:

Yeah we’re gonna get together you and me
