charley patton – going to move to alabama lyrics


aah : she’s long and tall
-the way she do the boogie- : makes a panther squall

i’m going to show you common women : how i feel
going to get me another woman : before i leave

say mama got the washboard : my sister got the tub
my brother got the whiskey : mama got the jug

well these evil women : sure make me tight
got a handful of give‑me : mouthful of much‑obliged

well i got a woman : she’s long and tall
but when she wiggles : she makes a panther squall

say mama and papa : going to work
left my sister standing : at the watering trough

my mama told me :
never love a woman : like she can’t love you

i got up this morning : my hat in my hand
didn’t have no other brown : didn’t have no man
