"Dust My Broom" as written by Joe Bihari and Elmore James....
I’m gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom
I’m gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom
I’m gonna quit the gal I’m lovin’
While my friend can have my room

I believe I believe my time aint long
I believe I believe my time aint long
I got a letter from my baby
And she tried to break up our happy home

Solo

I don’t want no woman
To stay drunk all the time
I don’t want no woman
To stay drunk all the time
Well that’s a no good darling
About to drive me outta my mind

I’m gonna call my Miss Fanny
She's my good girl over there
I’m gonna call my Miss Fanny
She's my good girl over there
Well I can’t find my baby
She must be in Ethiopia somewhere

I’m gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom
I’m gonna get up in the morning
I believe I'll dust my broom
I’m gonna quit the gal I’m lovin’
While my friend can have my room

I believe I believe my time aint long
I believe I believe my time aint long
I got a letter from my baby
She said she’d break up our happy home

I’m gonna write me a letter
I’m gonna telephone every town I know
I’m gonna write me a letter
Telephone every town I know
Well she not in New Orleans she in East Monroe you know

I don’t want no woman
Stay drunk all the time
I don’t want no woman
Stay drunk all the time
That’s a no good darlin
She bout to make me loose my mind

I’m gonna call my Miss Fanny
She's my good girl over there
I’m gonna call my Miss Fanny
She's my good girl over there
Well it seems I can’t find my baby
She must be in Ethiopia somewhere
