I got me a pony, Lord, she's already trained
Well, I got me a pony, Lord she already trained
When I get in my bed, mama, baby tighten up on the reins

Well, I got somethin' to tell you, Mama, when I git a chance
Hoo-hoo, mama, I got somethin' to tell you, Lord, when I get a chance
Mm, well, I don't want to marry, baby, just want to be your man

I got a brownskin woman, she don't pay me no mind
I got a brownskin woman, she don't pay me no mind
And I know you're gwon miss me, baby, when I leave this town

And I know my woman, she gwon to scream and cry
Lord, I know my woman, she's gwon to scream and cry
Aw, shucks
When she gets that letter, baby, Lord, I pass my few days out

I got me a grey pony, down in my pasture somewhere
I got me a grey pony, down in my pasture somewhere
I'm gwonna find my woman, baby, in this world somewhere

Fare you well, may be tomorrow day
Fare you well, mama, may be tomorrow day
I want you to know, babe, I didn't come here to stay

I ain't got nobody, talk baby talk to me
Well, I got nobody, mama, talk baby talk to me

Said, my Mama's getting old, Lord, her head done got grey
Mam' breaks my heart
Lord, my Mama, she got older now, and her head done got grey
Well, well, if I break her heart, you know, hoo, Lord, treated this-a-way

Fare you well, may be tomorrow day
