"Got the Bottle up and Gone" as written by and John Lee Williamson....
Well, I don't run no fillin' station
I don't sell no gas
I done brought my problem
My burners heat too fast

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
That your papa got your water on

Well now look-a-here, baby
What you been waitin' on?
Say ya didn't love me
I'd-a done been gone

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
You know that papa got you water on

Well, I had a little duck
An' I named him, Jim
I put him on the pond
Just to see him swim

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
You know that papa got your water on

Well, ya want ev'rything
In the latest style
But I've got wise
Unto your line of jive

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
That your papa got your water on

Well, if you don't love me
Why don't you tell me so?
I know you don't love me
Baby, no mo'

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
You know that your papa got your water on

I can't play no piano
But I wish I could
I got a woman
Don't mean me no good

You got the bottle up and gone
You got the bottle up and gone
You know that high-powered mama
You know that papa got your water on
