This song is by Big Joe Williams and appears on the compilation album Big Joe Williams Vol. 2 (1945-1949) (1991) and on the compilation album Big Joe Williams and the Stars of Mississippi Blues (2004).

Drop down, drop down, baby, if you care to go, little car gettin' old, woman, your horn won't even blow
Now, drop down, baby, let me overhaul your machine
My baby got a loose carburetor, Sonny Boy, I b'lieve she's burnin' bad gasoline

Well, you know jack of diamonds told the old, queen of spades, "Drop down, baby, and come on, be on your creeping' way."
But drop down, baby, well, I'm gonna overhaul your machine
Well, my baby got a loose carburetor, I believe she's burning bad gasoline

She got somethin' that's sweeter than peaches, boys, don't grow it on the tree, somethin' as sweet as honey, boy, you know it don't come from the bees
But drop down, baby, let me overhaul your machine
Well, she got a loose carburetor, I believe my baby's been burnin' bad gasoline

Play it for me, Sonny Boy! Play it for Nineteen and Forty-Six!

I'm gonna raise your motor, baby, I'm gonna heist your hood, your spark plug gettin' oil, little coil getting spark good
But drop down, baby, let me overhaul your machine
Well, my baby got a loose carburetor, boys, I believe she's burnin' bad gasoline

Yes, man. What kind of woman I got?
