10guthriesongs 11b.png CHORUS: Make me a bed right down on your floor
  Make me a bed right down on your floor
   I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor

I'm a poor lonesome boy I'm a long ways from home
I'm a poor lonesome boy I'm a long ways from home
and I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor

Sheriff on my trail with a big forty four
Sheriff on my trail with a big forty four
And I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor

10guthriesongs 11c.png Clock striking midnight and daylight to go
Clock striking midnight and daylight to go
And I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor

Pull down your shade and lock up your door
Pull down your shade and lock up your door
And I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor

That bully of the town won't bully me no more
That bully of the town won't bully me no more
'Cause I laid him dead on the old bar room floor

10guthriesongs 11d.png I laid a man dead down on the floor
I laid a man dead down on the floor
So I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor.

10guthriesongs 11e.png Make me a bed right down on your floor
Make me a bed right down on your floor
Baby I'll rest my head in a bed on your floor
