Well, I woke up this morning,
And I looked out the door.
I can tell that old milk cow
By the way she lowed.


Hold it fellows, that don't move me.
Let's get real, real gone for a change.


Well, I woke up this morning
And I looked out the door
I can tell that that old milk cow
I can tell the way she lowed.


Well, if you've seen my milk cow,
Please ride her on home.
I ain't had no milkin’ butter
Since that cow's been gone.


Well, I tried to treat you right,
Day by day.
Get out your little prayer book
Get down on your knees and pray.
You're gonna need,
You're gonna need your loving daddy's help someday.
Well, then you're gonna be sorry
For treating me this way.


Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down?
Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down?
Well, don't that old moon lonesome
When your baby's not around.


Well, I tried everything to get along with you.
I'm gonna tell you what I'm going do.
I'm gonna quit my crying, I'm gonna leave you alone.
If you don't believe I'm leaving, you can count the days I'm
gone.
I'm gonna leave.
You're gonna need your loving daddy's help someday.
Well, you're gonna be sorry


La grabación de Kokomo Arnold es de 1934, y seguramente es la que escuchó Elvis (aunque cambió gran parte de la letra y el ritmo desenfrenado que le imprimió).

Luego de la grabación de Presley, hubo decenas de covers. La mejor, sin dudas, es ésta: The Kinks / 1965 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwDBepAv4KU
