​Mama Don't Rush Me

This song is by Charley Lincoln and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by ​Charley Lincoln and ​Willie Baker.

Mama, you gettin' like a farmer's mule
Longer I know you, harder you to rule
Now, don't rush me, you is got to, to come down

Made my run in half past ten
When I got home you wouldn't let me in
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

Ah, don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

We went for a ride and you got rough
I've been used to struttin' my stuff
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

I make from one to ten dollars a day
I know that's enough, let you have your way
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

I buy you clothes, and I'm not rough
I know doggone well when I get enough
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

Ah, don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

Take me back, mama, try me one more time
I gave my straight salary, and my whole black time
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time

You quit me, mama, when I was in your town
You told your friend you's glad I was down
Don't rush me, I been used to takin' my time
