Late las' night I was a-makm* my rounds, Met my woman an51 blowed her down, Went on home an' I went to bed, Put my hand cannon right under my head.
Early nex> mornin' 'bout de risin5 o' de sun, I gets up-a for to make-a my run. I made a good run but I made it too slow, Got overtaken in Mexico.
♦Words and air from a tongue-tied Negro convict at Parchman, Mississippi.
