Me And My Gin

This song is by Dinah Washington and appears on the album Back to the Blues (1963).

Stay away from me
'Cause I'm in my sin
I said, stay away from me
'Cause I'm in my sin
But if this joint is raided
Somebody bring me my gin

Well, now don't mess with me nobody
'Cause you will never win
No, no, no, don't mess with me nobody, nuh uh
'Cause you will never win
I'll fight the Army and the Navy, Air Force, and anybody
If somebody brings me my gin

Well now, any bootlegger
Sure him a pal of mine
Any bootlegger
Sure him a pal of mine
'Cause a good bottle of gin
Will get it anytime

Especially when I get high, high
And ain't got nothing to do
I said, when I get high, high, high
There ain't nothing I won't do
So just keep me full of good liquor
And I'll be nice to you

'Cause I don't want no clothes
And I don't even need no bed
To lay my head
I don't want no clothes, no, no, no, no, no, no
And I don't even need no bed
No bed to lay my head

And I don't want no cold cuts
And my name isn't Clyde
All you gotta do is
Give me a little gin instead

Well, I got high last night
And I took my man to his wife's front door
I said I got juiced last night
And I took my man to his wife's front door
Oh, but she was a .45 packing mama
And I ain't gonna try that no more
