A really young Johnny Cash sings the tune.

De camptown ladies sing dis song, Doo-da, doo-da
De camptown racetrack five miles long, Oh! Doo-da! Day!
I come down dah wad my hat caved in, Doo-da, doo-da
I go back home wad a pocket full of tin, Oh! Doo-da! Day!

Wine to run all nice, wine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on de bob tail nag
Somebody bet on de bay

De long tail filly and de big black hoss
De fly de track and dey both cut across
De blind hoss stickin' in a big mud hole
Can't touch de bottom wid a ten foot pole

Old muley cow come on to de track
De bob tail fling her over his back
Den fly along like a railroad car
And run a race wid a shootin' star

See dem flyin' on a ten mile heat
Round de track, den repeat
I win my money on de bob tail nag
I keep my money in an old tow bag
