Down in Black Bottom

Down in Black Bottom

Now down in Black Bottom, that is so they say
They drink good moonshine and stay drunk all day

cho: I'm crazy about Black Bottom mmmm, so they say
     That's where they drink good moonshine and stay drunk all day.

Yes I went down in Black Bottom I didn't go to lay down the law,
Police brought me out by my right arm,

Now if you go down in Black Bottom and you don' know the rules,
Black Bottom women will try to make a fool of you

If you go down in Black Bottom put your money in your shoes
Lord them Black Bottom women will give your pockets the blues

Now if you go down in Black Bottom put your money down in your britches
Cause them women's goin to rob you now you dirty mmm-mmm

Now if anybody asks you who com-pose this song
Tell them some snake bottom buddy's done been here and gone

     He's down in Black Bottom mmmm, so they say
     That's where they drink good moonshine and stay drunk all day.
