Oil & Water
copyright 2015/Hank Thomas all rights reserved


V1
Billy Joe lived at the edge of the swamp
Didn't seem a lot brighter than a hickory stump
But he could fix a truck or a tractor in a minute
Get it runnin' real good no matter what's wrong with it.
Emmy was a smart one, finished her schoolin'
Always did the right thing, never broke a rule and

Pre
Emmy met Billy at a high school dance
They were sneakin' out back for a little romance

Chorus
Like oil & water they're never gonna mix
But the two of them together is a mighty good fit
Poor man's son and a lawman's daughter
Lovin' each other just like they oughtta
Everybody says that it don't really matter
If they go together like oil & water

V2
Her Daddy said boy now, what's it gonna be
Mess around with my Emmy you'll be messin' with me
Billy said sheriff,sir, I ain't gonna lie
I'm gonna love my Emmy till the day I die
Then he said, Emmy girl, first things first
They got married in a little white church

Pre
Ain't nobody thought they're gonna last too long
But Emmy & Billy gonna prove them wrong

CHORUS

Lead break
V3
20 years later still got a little home
Down in the holler where the willow trees grow
Billy giggin' frogs in a flat- bottom boat
Emmy's readin' Glamour & Harper's & Vogue

Pre
Ain't nobody thought they would last this long
But Emmy & Billy gonna prove them wrong

CHORUS
