World In A Jug
Canned Heat Lyrics


Well, I woke up one morning.
You were on my mind.
Oh well, I look for you baby
But you were hard to find.
I couldn't help but wonder
How could I be so blind.

Oh well, I cried last night.
I cried the night before.
Oh well, I find you baby.
You didn't love me no more.
I couldn't help but wonder
What I was crying for.

I got the world in a jug.
The stopper's in my hand.
I got me plenty of women
Jump at my command.
If you don't want me, baby
Find yourself another man.

Oh well, I‘d rather be buried, Lord
In some lonely cypress grove
Than ever encounter a woman
That I can't control.
Just remember darlin'
That you reap just what you sow.
Yeah

I got the world in a jug.
The stopper's in my hand.
I got me plenty of women
That jump at my command.
Well, if you don't want me, baby
Find yourself another man.

Yeah

Hi Julian, thks a lot for your draft, I guess I almost got them now : the lyrics of this fantastic song from this huge Blues-Boogie group, my very best EVER !!! Pls tell me if you agree on the issue ... :

“Well I woke up one morning, you were out of my mind / Oh well I looked for you baby but you were, hard to find / I couldn’t help but wonder, how could I be so blind
Oh well I cried last night, I cried the night before / Oh when I found you baby, you didn’t love me no more / I couldn’t help but wonder, what I was crying for

I got the world in a jug, just opposite of my hand / I got me pretty women, jump at my command / If you don’t want me baby, find yourself another man

GUITAR SOLO

Oh well I‘d rather be buried Lord in, some lonely cypress grove / Than have encoutered a woman, that I can’t control / Just remember darling, got to reap just what you sow

I got the world in a jug, just opposite of my hand / I got me pretty women, jump at my command / Well, If you don’t want me baby, find yourself another man”

Sublime !

I would definitely find myself another man. Control and command have nothing to do with deep love. I would try to find Alan the Owl and he will not be blind anymore . I like him

Christopher Webb

Agreed!..

Think the line is " Have a contrary woman that I can't control" . Brilliant song, easy to play on repeat
