Let Me Be Your Sidetrack
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


My good gal's gone
Don't know why she went away
Yes my mama's gone I don't know why she went away
All I know is she's gone she didn't have a word to say

When she left me oh I sit down and cry
When she left me I just sit down and cry
But I felt so blue I thought I might commit suicide

I want a new mama a good gal that won't leave
Yes I want a new mama a good woman that won't leave
We'll do some high grade lovin' just like old Adam and Eve
I saw two little monkeys playin' up and down a tree
Yes, I saw two little monkeys playin' up and down in a tree
One said to the other, "Come on, let's make whoopee"

Listen, mama, I know when you're hanging 'round
Yes, I know, pretty mama, when you are hanging around
'Cause I don't see no fire, but I am burning down

There's something 'bout you women, always making me sore
There's something 'bout you women, keep on making me sore
No matter how much you get, you keep coming back for more

Let me be your sidetrack 'til your mainline come
Let me be your sidetrack 'til your mainline come
'Cause I can do more switchin' than your mainline's ever done

When you see a spider climbin' up a lonesome wall
When you see that spider, climbing up a wall
You can tell the world, he's going to get his ashes hauled
