You Is One Black Rat

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Lightnin' and Co. (1964).

My little Gloria, she had a new boyfriend and all
I thought I was the only one
But I found out she had a another one
Then made two of her Incomprehensible

Too many
And I had this word to tell her, 'bout the new fella
He's one black rat, one damn fine Incomprehensible
I want you to listen through

Yeah, you is one black rat, one day, I'll find your trail
Yeah, you is one black rat, one day, I'll find your trail
Then I'll hide my shoe somewhere near your shirttail

Well I take you in my home
You ate up all my bread
I left there this morning
You say, my whole family been fed

Yeah, yeah, you is one black rat, one day, I'll find your trail
Then I'll hide my shoe somewhere near your shirttail

Well, I taken you downtown
I bought everything you need
When I gotten back in my house
You ate up all my feed

You is one black rat, one day, I'll find your trail
Then I'll hide my shoe somewhere near your shirttail
