I'm gonna leave old Memphis, Stuttgart, Arkansas

Well, you seen that little old woman, walkin' down the street
Ask her what the matter, man, know she been drinkin' heat
I'm gonna leave old Memphis, Stuttgart, Arkansas
Man these bad-lookin' women, man, you ever saw

Well, she hit the policeman, knocked him off his feet
"What's wrong with you gal?" "I been drinkin' heat."
I'm gonna leave old Memphis, Stuttgart, Arkansas
Man, these bad-lookin' women, man, you ever saw

Well, I've got me a little old woman, right down on the ground
Every time I kiss her, man, have a face all full of frowns
I'm gonna leave old Memphis, Stuttgart, Arkansas
Man, these bad-lookin' women, man, you ever saw

Well, I went down to my bossman, fell down on my knees
"Don't want nothin' crippled but my good gal back to me."

I just made it up, but here's how I did it.

Brown pot roast on both sides. Put a few slices of onion and a whole celery stalk in. Put chopped garlic, salt and pepper on one side of roast. Flip over, repeat. Pour beer and chicken stock to BARELY cover. Add a dash of Worchestershire sauce. Cook for 1 hour, flipping once. Remove veggies if you want. Put in lots of potatoes, onion slices, carrots, whatever. Really pack 'em in. Bring to boil. Let go another 1 - 1.5 hours, flipping once. Add liguid if necessary. When tender, remove everything. Let roast stand and slice. Cook down the sauce a little. Thicken if you want to (I didn't). Taste and correct seasonsing. Put everything back in until warmed. Then eat.
