"Ground Hog Blues" as written by and Charles Davenport....
Now I'm a walkin' groundhog, mama, and I walks around in my den
Now I'm a walkin' groundhog, mama, and I walks around in my den
Now if I come out and see my shadow, John, I believe I'll go back in

Now I want some feedin', mama, so I can hear a high sound
If you don't feed me, baby, I believe I'll go back in the ground
Because I'm that walkin' groundhog, mama, and I walks around in my den
Now if I come out and see my shadow, you say you don't love me
I believe I'll go back in

Now I wanna hear some swingin' music--I wanna hear a Fats Waller song
Now if I start to jitter-buggin', I'm forgettin' my hole down in the ground
Because I'm that walkin' groundhog, man, and I walks around in my den
Now if I come out and see my shadow, my woman don't love me
I believe I'll go back in

Yes, John, you know what I mean
Oh, you know I'm a-walkin' wild

Now I need some pettin', baby; baby, you know what I mean
Now if you don't pet me, baby, I believe I'll go back down in New Orleans
Because I'm that walkin' groundhog; at night I walks around in my den
Now if I come out and see my shadow, my woman don't love me
Yeah, and I believe I'll go back in
