This song is by Blind Boy Fuller and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Volume 2 (1936-1937) (1992).

If you don't give me just what I want
Mama said her never will
If you don't give me just what I want
Then I know who will

Woke up this morning bout half past four
Saw a man running out my woman back door
You don't give me just what I want
Baby that a no good way I mean, mama that a no good way, yeah!

You don't give me just what I want
Mama that a no good way, yeah
You don't give me just what I want
Then I know who will

Ashes to ashes, sand to sand
Show me a woman ain't gotta back door man
You don't give me just what I want
Baby that a no good way I mean, baby that a no good way, yeah!

You don't give me just what I want
Mama that a no good way, yeah
You don't give me just what I want
Then I know you will

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Show me a woman that a man can trust
You don't give me just what I want, baby
Then I know who will, I mean, sure as hell I know who will, yeah!

Mama be old standing on a ledge yeah!

If you don't give me just what I want
Baby, then I know who will
If you don't give me just what I want
Then I know who will

I ask my girl was she still last night
If I ask your mama she weren't acting right
You don't give me just what I want
Baby, then I know who will, I mean, baby then I know who will, yeah!

You don't give me just what I want
Mama, then I know who will
You don't give me just what I want
Telling you I know who will

Met a girl this morning she was sixteen years old
Then if I think she was she was standing by my door
You don't give me just what I want mama
Then I know who will

Keep on telling you, then I know who will, yeah

You don't give me just what I want
Baby, then I know who will, I mean, mama then I know who will
