American Ballads and Folk Songs
Sho gonna let him ride. (2) Great Godamighty, babe, Sho gonna let him ride.
Ef you got a good woman, an' she won' treat you right, You can knock 'er down, stomp on 'er, cut 'er head, An' walk de streets all night, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, An' walk de streets all night.
Ef you got a good man, an' he won' treat you right, Hit 'im in de head wid a burnin' lamp, An' walk de streets all night, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, An' walk de streets all night.
Well, it's a dirty shame, (2)
To see dese woman spendin' money,
An' it's for cocaine, (2)
Great Godamighty, babe,
An' it's for cocaine*
Why doncha be like me? (2) Drink yo high-tension whisky, babe, An' let yo' cocaine be, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, An' let yo' cocaine be.

Doctor Cook's in town, (2)
Says, "De North Pole's too dog-gone col\
I'm Alabama-bound, (2)
Great Godamighty, babe,
I'm Alabama-bound."
[208]
