James Waynen alunperin 1951 nauhoittama Junco Partner on kuvaus narkkarielämästä.

Kappaleen on äänittänyt myöhemmin iso liuta muusikoita, mm. James Booker ja The Clash.

“Down the road came a Junco Partner
For he was loaded as can be
He was knocked out, knocked out loaded
He was a’wobblin’ all over the street

Singing 6 months ain’t no sentence
And one year ain’t no time
I was born in Angola
Serving 14 to 99

Well I wish I had me $1 million dollars
Oh one million to call my own
I would raise meat and say, “grow for me baby”
I would raise me a tobacco farm

Well I wish I would have me a great deal of money
Yeah and mighty good things all over town
Now I ain’t got no more money
All of my good friends are putting me down

So now I gotta pawn my rifle and pistol
Yeah I’m gonna pawn my watch and chain
I would have pawned my seat Gabriella
But the smart girl she wouldn’t sign her name

Give me headstone when I die”
