Goin' Back and Talk to Mama

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the compilation album All the Classics 1946 - 1951 (2003) and on the compilation album Texas Thunderbolt (2007).

Yes, man, I was born March the fifteenth, you know the year of nineteen hundred and twelve
Yes, I was born March the fifteenth, boys, nineteen hundred and twelve
Yes, you know ever since that day, poor Lightnin' ain't been doing so well

Yes, I'm going back and talk to mama, just to see what mama say
So she will make me think about my old home seat and the places that I used to play
You know, I'm going back and talk to mama just to see what will poor mama say
Yeah, so she can make me remember old places where I used to play

When I go talk to my mama, these is the words that I'm gon' say:
"Just show me the old places I used to be, mama, and the places I used to play"
You know I'm' talk to my mama, gon' ask her, whoa, 'bout the places I used to play
Yes, I'm often thinking about where I used to play
