Roger Miller — It Happened Just That Way lyrics

Well I was born in the boomer's shack bout that far from railroad track
Choo-choo ratled my window pane and the sheet iron roof tells me evertime it rains
Well yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea
Well yea yea yea yea it happened just that way

Well I went to a one room school walked to and from this school
I carried my lunch in a paper sack it was one mile over two miles back
Well yea yea yea yea...
[ ac. Guitar ]
I say my brother worked hard in the grain papa drove a choo-choo train
And one sister was a righteous girl but the other was a woman of the world
Well yea yea yea yea...
Hmm yea yea yea yea...
