Ain't gonna be in the second 'Bama long
Ain't gonna be in the second 'Bama long
Ain't gonna be in the second 'Bama long

Been to the nation an' I just got back
Been to the nation an' I just got back
Didn't get no money but I drawed the sack

If you didn't want me don't you dog me 'round
If you didn't want me don't you dog me 'round
I didn't come here to be nobody's dog

Just as sure as the sun sets in the golden west
Just as sure as the sun sets in the golden west
I got the one that I love the best

It looks like mama, you done been out all night
It looks like mama, you done been out all night
You talkin' out o' your head an' your clothes don't fit you right

So come here mama give me your right hand
Yes, come here mama give me your right hand
I'll go back to my women, you go back to your man

Recorded:

1927
