Motherless Chile Blues
by Barbecue Bob

If I mistreat you, gal, I sure don't mean no harm
If I mistreat you, gal, I sure don't mean no harm
I'm a motherless child and I don't know right from wrong

Please tell me, pretty mama, honey, where you stayed last night
Tell me, pretty mama, Lord, honey, where you stayed last night
You didn't come home 'til the sun was shinin' bright

I have to go so far to get my hambone boiled
I have to go so far, gal, to get my hambone boiled
These Atlanta womens gon' let my hambone spoil

I done done more for you, than your daddy ever done
I did more for you, gal, than your daddy ever done
I give you my jelly, he ain't gived you none

When you see two women always runnin' hand in hand
When you see two women always runnin' hand in hand
You can bet your bottom dollar, one's got the other one's man

I'm goin' to the river, get me a Tango rocking chair
I'm goin' to the river, get me a Tango rocking chair
If the blues overtake me, gonna rock 'em away from there
