"Swing It On Home (Take 1) " as written by and Willie Mae Thornton....

I wished I was an Elp
Hanging from a tree
Now! All the sweet little men,
preaching out to me

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swung on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Listen everybody!
What I got to say!
Hope that when you hear this record
I’ll be in your home someday.

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swinging on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Last year you bought a horse
This year you knew it
Told me that it was going home
to get married to Jude.

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swinging on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

We don't pick no cotton!
Not even tomatoes!
All that we plant in my hometown
is candy and potatoes!

I wished I was an Elp
Hanging from a tree
Now! All the sweet little men,
preaching out to me

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swung on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Listen everybody!
What I got to say!
Hope that when you hear this record
I’ll be in your home someday.

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swinging on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Last year you bought a horse
This year you knew it
Told me that it was going home
to get married to Jude.

Oh swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama run on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Hey Everybody!
Hope you like how we play!
When you see your buddie dies-
this is what he says:

I wished I was an Elp
Hanging from a tree
Now! All the sweet little men,
preaching out to me

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swung on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Listen everybody!
What I got to say!
Hope that when you hear this record
I’ll be in your home someday.

Now I'm swingin' on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swinging on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Last year you bought a horse
This year you knew it
Told me that it was going home
to get married to Jude.

Oh Runnin on home
Mama's swingin' on home
Big Mama swinging on home
Big Mama- is gonna marry you someday

Now swingin' on home
Big mama swingin' on home
Big mama- is gonna marry you someday

    General CommentHmmmm...sounded as though Big Mama was away (on the road touring?) but wanted to return home, 'cause she was gonna marry her man. I have a feeling it would have been difficult to escape the grasp of big mama...just love the woman!!!
