Hard Lead Pencil

This song is by The Honeydripper and appears on the compilation Let Me Squeeze Your Lemon: The Ultimate Rude Blues Collection (2003).

My pal used to be a good writer but out of his pencil he lost his lead
My pal used to be a good writer but out of his pencil he lost his lead
Now someone else have to do his writing and he wished to Lord that he was dead

Mmm, but I know he's mighty strong
Mmm, but I know he's mighty strong
You don't lose the lead out of your pencil and your writing is got to be carried on

I'm just like a squirrel jumping from limb to limb
I'm just like a squirrel jumping from limb to limb
I got a brand new pencil that hasn't never been trimmed

If you ever lose the lead out of your pencil just throw your love into the deep blue sea
If you ever lose the lead out of your pencil just throw your love into the deep blue sea
Because I've got a brand new pencil and your woman is gonna trim it for me

I'm gonna let these women use my hard pencil night and day
I'm gonna let these women use my hard pencil night and day
Because my lead is too valuable to be just trimmed away
