Say you talkin' 'bout your red ripe tomatoes
I'm crazy bout my t-bone steak
Said you talkin' bout your red ripe tomatoes
I'm crazy bout my t-bone steak
Said, I'm gonna find me a faror
To share my Cadillac Eight

I got the railroad blues
Troubles come ov'are my mind
I got the railroad blues
Trouble come ov'are my mind
And that girl I'm lovin'
She sho' done left this time

Say if I had ways
Like a bullfrog on a pond
Say if I had ways
Like a bullfrog on a pond
I would ride right 'chere
Lie in sweet mama's arms

You love once ain't, forever
You know babe, two
Lord, anybod' twice
Your love once ain't, forever
You know babe, two
Lord, anybod' twice
But you woman all get a good man
You don't know how to treat him right.

~

note: The 1st verse relates to the last verse of 'That's What My Baby Likes'
Recorded by Lucille Bogan as follows:

'I gets red ripe tomatoes, buy me a T-bone steak
And if I fix it like he tell me, he'll give me a Cadillac Eight
That's what my baby likes, that's what my baby likes
He's crazy about me, and he do let me have my fun.
