Traveling Mama Blues

This song is by Joe Callicott and appears…

Well I surely mama, tryin' to carry your daddy by
Well I surely mama, tryin' to carry your daddy by
Said I want to let you know, I grown most too high

Then when you see your rider in and out the road
When you see your rider, out and in the road
Said she turnin' on a fan like a 1930 Ford

Ah, she doin' things that you don't ever know
Said now she doin' things you don't ever knew
(Instrumental)

Ah, stop and listen at the one note, how she blow
Said now stop and listen, at... one note, how she blow
When it stab anyone's heart, made them wan'ta go

With my girl in the daytime, I walk wit' her at night
Walkin' my good girl in the daytime, walk wit' her at night
Said I'm tryin' to teach and tell her how to treat a good man right

Way you doing me mama, says it's outta sight
Way you doin' me mama, says it's outta sight
Said anything a kidman do, well it be's all right

I'm gonna jack me a paling from my yard's back fence
I'm gonna jack me a paling, from my yard's back fence
I'm gonna put a whuppin' learn the good girl some sense

Well I do an' I do, double do love you
Well I do an' I do, do an' I do love you
Say there ain't nothin' about me ain't the same 'bout you
