"Fannin Street" as written by and Collected & Adpt. By John A. Lomax And Alan Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
Follow me down
Follow me down
Follow me down
By Mr Tom Hughes, ooh

My mama told me
My lil' sister too
"Women down the street, sonny
Gonna be the death of you"

Said to my mama
"Mama, you don't know
Women down the street kill me
Why don't you let me go"

Ooh, she commenced cryin', ooh, ooh, ooh

Mm, mhm
I couldn't stand to hear her crying

I went to my mama
Fell down on my knees
Said, 'Oh, Lordy, mama, would you forgive me, please?'
Ooh, ooh, commenced cryin', I said ooh, ooh
Mm, mhm

I wanna know wha side of the streets do I drive on when I leave, huh

I got a woman livin' on Stony Hill
Been runnin' all over town with Buffalo Bill
He was a bad man

You been runnin' all over town with Buffalo Bill
Two chances in one, babe,
That you ain't done got killed

Ooh, ooh, commenced cryin'
Yeah

Mm, mhm crying for me now
Cries and surely lives

Anyone should ask you people
Who made up this song
Tell 'em Huddie Ledbetter's
Done been here and gone, ooh ooh ooh ooh

Mm, mhm
