My Wife Drove Me From My Door

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.

When I came home this morning, my wife, she met me at the door
When I came home this morning, my wife, she met me at the door
"Go away, sweet daddy", says, "I can't use you no more"

Huh-hey, hey, mama, baby, what's the matter now?
Oh, hey, hey, mama, baby, what's the matter now?
Say, you're tryin' to quit me, honey, and you don't know how

Spoken: Yes, I know you been actin' funny about a week or two

Where it tain't no love, sure ain't no gettin' along
Where it tain't no love, mama, sure ain't no gettin' along
Says, my brown treat me so mean that I don't know right from wrong

Come back, baby, papa ain't mad at you
Says, come back, baby, papa ain't mad at you
Says, I do just like, mama babe, says, I used to do

Take me back, baby, says, try me one more time
Oh, take me back, baby, try me, says, a-one more time
If I don't do to suit you, honey, I'll break my backbone tryin'

Some don't like me because that I speaks my mind
I know the mens don't like me because that I speaks my mind
But the women crazy 'bout me, 'cause, says, I takes my time

Recorded:

1927
