Jim Kweskin - Rag Mama lyrics

Fuller

Says I'm going uptown hat in my hand
Looking for the woman ain't got no man.
Just as well be looking for a needle in the sand
Looking for a woman ain't got no man.

Oh, rag.
Rag.
Rag.
Said do that rag.

Oh, rag.
Oh, rag.
Rag.
Said do that rag.

Says I wouldn't have thought my gal would treatin' me so.
Love another man stay at my back door.
Mind, mama, what you sow.
You got to reap just what you sow.

Oh, rag.
Rag, now.
Rag, baby.
Rag, mama.
Said do that rag.

Oh, rag.
Do it a long time.
Rag.
Said do that rag

Now if you'll get you one woman better get you two,
One for your buddy other one for you.
Got me a wife and a sweetheart too.
Wife don't love me my sweetheart do.

Oh, rag.
Rag, baby.
Rag.
Rag, mama,
Said do that rag.

Oh, rag.
Rag.
Rag, baby.
Said do that rag.

[Instrumental break]

[Scat verse]

Oh, rag.
Oh, rag, baby.
Rag, mama.
Said do that rag

Oh, rag.
Oh, rag, baby.
Rag, mama.
Said do that rag.

Now rag, baby

[Instrumental break]

Oh, rag.
Oh, rag.
Rag, mama.
Said do that rag.

Said my gal hollered murder I ain't raised my hand.
Pistol in my pocket black jack in my hand
Took my gal under the willow tree.
Ought to hear her hollering, "Don't murder me!"

Oh, rag, shh...
Oh, rag.
Rag, now, baby,
Rag.
Said do that rag.

Oh, rag.
Oh, rag, baby.
Rag again.
Said do that rag.

[Instrumental break]

Spoken: Rag, now, gal
