about

Written by James Quick, with revised lyrics, bridge and key change by Lee.

lyrics

Oh I am going to music college in the county seat someday
To gain a lot of knowledge ‘bout how to sing and how to play
The Folk University’s a name most folks have seen
Cause when I say “Folk U.” they understand just what I mean.

I’m going to Folk U
Until I’m satisfied
That I’m the best there is and no one does it quite like I do
I’m going to Folk U
Though it might take a while
I’ll come out with a smile
And I’ll hang up that old sheepskin on the wall when I’m through
I’m going to Folk U, Folk U, Folk U
Until I get it right.

This institute of higher learning gets a great deal of respect
Why just the thought of getting in there makes you hold your head erect
That’s why the Folk University’s the college of my choice
I’m going to Folk U until the whole world hears my voice.

[repeat chorus]

No matter how hard that it gets, I’ll just keep on keepin’ on
I know that I can make it in the end
There might be some dull professors that I’ll end up sleepin’ on
But with firm determination
And a lot of perspiration
I will reach my destination
And when I finish, I won’t need to pretend

And though the competition might be stiff, I’ll do much more than pass
I’ll take on the student body, be on top of my class
And the Folk University will be my claim to fame
Cause all the folks who went there always said they’re glad they came.

I’m going to Folk U
Until I’m satisfied
That I’m the best there is and no one does it quite like I do
I’m going to Folk U
Though it might take a while
I’ll come out with a smile
And I’ll hang up that old sheepskin on the wall when I’m through
I’m going to Folk U, Folk U, Folk U
And even if I have to practice thru the night
I'll get it right!
