Down Brownie

This song is by ZZ Top and appears on the album Rio Grande Mud (1972).

When I woke up this mornin'
Had a smile run across my face
My baby from town just had to get down
Come and drag me all over the place

Got a job on a flatbed trailer truck
Down on Highway Fifty-Nine
I had the blues, and my baby, she knew
She's holdin' a little piece of mine

Down Brownie
My Brownie downtown
Down Brownie

Got my share in all the black-hand cotton fields
Just to try and keep myself alive
Eatin' red beans and rice; with the right sauce, it's nice
Or anything you wanna try

Now I'm hitchin' a ride back from Brownie's
I'm kind of sad but I feel alright
The cold night, it stings, but I got me some wings
I'll be flyin' into Houston tonight
