Verse one:
I’ve been feeling low, sad and blue
Now old friend I’m looking to you
Would you play me a tune, Mr. Banjo Man?

Verse two:
Let me feel those vibes from silver strings
Let me hear the joy when your banjo rings
Would you play me a song Mr. Banjo Man?

Chorus:
Hey! Hey, Mr. Banjo Man
You can pick it high and pick it low
You can play fast you can play it slow
I can’t get enough, so don’t you quit too soon.
So would you play me a tune, Mr. Banjo Man?

Verse three:
You move over the frets with your master hand
You move over my soul with your banjo grand
Would you play me a tune, Mr. Banjo Man?

Chorus:
Hey! Hey, Mr. Banjo Man
You can pick it high and pick it low
You can play fast you can play it slow
I can’t get enough, don’t quit too soon
So would you play me a tune, Mr. Banjo Man?

Chorus two:
Hey! Hey, Mr. Banjo Man
You can pick up my spirit when I’m feelin’ low
You can play away my trouble, don’t you know.
I can’t get enough, so don’t you quit too soon.
So would you play me a tune, Mr. Banjo Man?
