All I Owe Ioway lyrics

All I Owe Ioway

Marty:
I can hear 'em callin' hogs in the clear Ioway air,
I can sniff the fragrant whiff of an Ioway rose!
Chorus:
You've got Ioway in your heart!
Marty:
I've got Ioway in my hair!
I've got Ioway in my ears and eyes and nose!
Oh, I know all I owe I owe Ioway,
I owe Ioway all I owe and I know why.
I am Ioway born and bred,
And on Ioway corn I'm fed,
Not to mention her barley, wheat, and rye!
Marty and Chorus:
I owe Ioway for her ham and her beef and her lamb,
And her strawberry jam, and her pie!
Marty:
I owe Ioway more than I can ever pay,
So I think I'll move to Californ-i-ay!
Chorus:
What a shame!
Emily:
What a shame! (What a shame!)
What a shame! (What a shame!)
Chorus:
You'll be good and gosh-darn sorry when you go.
Man:
Don't I know!
Emily:
When you leave your native state,
You'll be feelin' far from great!
You'll be good and gosh-darn sorry when you go!
Marty:
I'm a seed of Ioway grain.
Emily:
You're a breeze that Ioway blew.
Marty:
I'm a drop of Ioway rain!
Emily and Chorus:
You're a drip of Ioway dew!
Emily:
Oh, I know all I owe I owe Ioway.
I owe Ioway all I owe and I know why.
I am Ioway born and bred,
And on Ioway corn I'm fed,
Not to mention her barley, wheat and rye!
I owe Ioway for her ham and her beef
And her lamb, and her --
Heppenstahl:
Strawberry jam!
Melissa:
...and her pie!
Heppenstahl:
I owe Ioway more than anyone should owe,
So I think I'll start in owin' Idaho!
Emily:
All together!
All (and Hepp. backing):
What a shame! (What a shame!)
What a shame! (What a shame!)
You'll be cryin' like a baby when you go!
Heppenstahl:
Don't I know!
When I leave my native heath,
With my lip between my teeth,
I'll be bawlin' like a booby when I go!
Emily:
You're a seed of Ioway grain,
You're a breeze that Ioway blew.
Abel (drunken):
I'm a drop of Ioway rain!
Melissa:
You're a drip of Ioway dew!

All:
Chorus:
Oh, I know all I owe I owe Ioway,
I owe Ioway all I owe and I know why.
I am Ioway born and bred,
And on Ioway corn I'm fed,
Not to mention her barley, wheat, and rye!
I owe Ioway for her ham and her beef and her lamb,
And her strawberry jam, and her pie!
Man:
I owe Ioway more than I can ever pay,
So I think I'll move to Californi-a!
Chorus:
Better stay!
Better stay!
Chorus:
You'll be good and gosh-darn sorry if you go.
Man:
Don't I know!

Then there's a little more that I don't really know.
