Says, I'll cut your throat, mama, drink your blood like wine
I'll cut your throat, mama, and drink your blood like wine
Say, you can't quit me and t'ain't no need of tryin'

I'm goin' up the country, mama, swear the time ain't long
I'm goin' up the country, mama, I swear the time ain't long
Don't believe I'm leavin' count the days I'm gone

I stood on the corner 'til I got soakin' wet
I stood on the corner, brownie, 'til I got soakin' wet
I bowed my head at every brown I met

I stood on the corner, looked two blocks and a half
I stood on the corner, looked two blocks and a half
I stood on the corner, looked two blocks and a half
I didn't see my rider, but I'm sure I heard her laugh

Sayin', I don't want no woman got hair like drops of rain
I don't love no woman got hair like drops of rain
Says, the woman I love got hair like a horse's mane

Mama, if you don't want me what makes you whine and cry?
Mama, if you don't want me what makes you whine and cry?
You called me sweet daddy when you see me passin' by

When you see me comin', mama, heist your window high
When you see me comin', mama, heist your window high
When you see me leavin' hang your head and cry

I'd rather drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow tree
I'd rather drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow tree
Than to hear my fary say she don't want me
