"Driva Man" as written by and Oscar Brown Jr. Maxwell Roach....
Driva man, he made a life
But the Mamie ain't his wife
Choppin' cotton, don't be slow
Better finish out your row
Keep a-movin' with that plow
Driva man'll show yer how
Get to work and root that stump
Driva man'll make you jump
Better make your hammer ring
Driva man'll start to swing
Ain't but two things on my mind
Driva man and quittin' time

Driva man the kinda boss
Ride a man and lead a horse
When his cat o' nine tail fly
You'd be happy just to die
Runaway and you'll be found
By his big old red bone hound
Pater oller, bring ya back
Make ya sorry you is black
Driva man he made a life
But the Mamie ain't his wife
Ain't but two things on my mind
Driva' man and quittin' time

Driva man the kinda boss
Ride a man and lead a horse
When his cat o' nine tail fly
You'd be happy just to die
Runaway and you'll be found
By his big old red bone hound
Pater oller, bring ya back
Make ya sorry you is black
Driva man he made a life
But the Mamie ain't his wife
Ain't but two things on my mind
Driva' man and quittin' time
