Southern Woman Blues

Way down south : you ought to see the women shimmy and shake
Their new way of wiggle : make a weak man break his neck

You fed me greens : and I mean that they really can cook
Make me a jellyroll : and I mean it's out the book

I was down south : where all my whiskey cook
Just looking at them women : makes me want to get my gauge stuck

Southern women : man [they're, they sure is] hard to beat
Ain't so easy to get along with : but Lord so sweet

I'm going down south : and I believe I'll take my hook
I'm going to fish in southern women : I declare it's out the book

Me and my sugar : *something I did hold*
I won't go to fishing : mama I done broke my pole
