Peetie Wheatstraw - Beer Tavern lyrics

How many mo' years

Baby, now will I be your slave?

I say, how many mo' years

Mama, now will I be your slave?

Well, now something been tellin' you

Woo-well, now I'm tired of you low down dirty ways

When I come home at night

Baby, ev'rything is wrong

When I come home at night

Mama, ev'rything is wrong

Now you sit keep company all day

Woo-well-well, your man he will be gone

I often tell you

To be careful what you do

Woo-hoo-well, brown

To be careful what you do

Well-now if it is right or wrong

Woo-well, somebody may tell on you

(piano - Peetie)

I tried to be a real man

But now it seems to be all in vain

Woo-hoo-ooo, girl

Seems to be all in vain

But now you know if tell on you, baby

Woo-well, now you going just the same

Can you tell me, babe

If you know just what right means?

Woo-well, brown

If you know just what right means?

Well, you are about the dumbest woman

Woo-well, then any woman I ever seen.
