Knockin' Down Windows

Knockin' Down Windows
(Mance Lipscomb)

Goin' uptown, what do you want me to bring you back?
Yes, I'm goin' uptown, what do you want me to bring you back?
I was knockin' down windows, tearin' down doors,
Tryin' to get even with a girl I love.

A brownskin woman make a preacher lay his bible down.
Tell me, a brownskin woman'll make a preacher lay his bible down.
I'm both knockin' down windows, was tearin' around doors,
Tryin' to get even with a girl I love.
Brownskin woman'll make a preacher lay his bible down.

An' a jet-black woman'll make a rabbit hug a hound.
An' a jet-black woman'll make a rabbit hug a hound.
Knockin' down windows, was tearin' around doors,
Was tryin' to get even with a girl I love.
Make a rabbit hug a hound.
