McTell

Wake up, baby, turn your lamp down low
Wake up, mammy, turn your lamp down low
Have you got no nerve to turn uncle john from your door?

I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen
Well, I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen
Well, now, she treat me like a king, I treat her like a dog gone queen.

Well my momma died and left me
My poppa died and left me
I ain't good looking baby
Want someone sweet and kind.


I woke up this morning, I had them statesboro blues
I woke up this morning, had them statesboro blues
Well, I looked over in the corner, and grandpa seemed to have them too.

I'm goin' to the country, baby do you wanna go?
But if you can't make it baby, your sister Lucille said she wanna go
(And I sure will take her).

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low
You got no nerve babe, to turn uncle john from your door.
