Meet Me Around the Corner

This song is by Big Joe Williams and appears…

Meet me around the corner, babe, bring my boots and shoes
Yeah, meet me 'round the corner, bring my boots and shoes
My best woman quit me and I ain't got no time to lose

Now, she's low and she squatty, she's right down on the ground
Lord, she low, I say she's squatty, she's right down on the ground
Every time she walks, she make my love came down

Woman I'm lovin', sleepin' in her grave
Lord, the woman I'm lovin', sleepin' in her grave
Lord, the one I hate, I can meet her every day

Please don't give my baby no job
Please don't give my baby no job
She's a married woman and I don't 'low her to work too hard

You gwine do, when they's take your man to the war?
What you gwine to do, when they carry your man to the war?
Got to drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow log

Ease up, boy!

Early one mornin', just about the break of day, t'night you mama, Great God almighty
Early one mornin', just 'bout the break of day
I hugged the pillow where my baby used to lay

She ain't good-lookin', she got two teeth crowned with gold
She ain't very good-lookin', she got two teeth crowned with gold
Got a lien on her body, got a mortgage on her soul
