​From Now On

This song is by Ed Bell and appears on the compilation album Ed Bell "Mamlish Blues" (1927-1930) (1992).

Faro, you used to dog me, used to drive me like a cow
Now, you used to dog me, used to drive me like a cow
But now, you can't drive me, 'cause you don't know how

From now on, mama, I tell you just like that
From now on, mama, I tell you just like that
If you hit my dog, sure gwine to kick your cat

From now on, mama, I ain't gwine to have no rule
From now on, mama, I ain't gwine to have no rule
I'm gonna get hard-headed and act just like a doggone mule

From now on, mama, you gonna do what I say
From now on, mama, you must do what I say
You must understand, you can't have your way

From now on, mama, this way you got a-doin'
From now on, mama, this way you got a-doin'
Sugar, you better stop it, Lord, it's sure gonna be your ruin

From now on, mama, starting from this very day
From now on, mama, starting from this very day
I'm gonna get someone who can drive my blues away

I want her to drive them off so they won't come back no more
Want her to drive them off so they won't come back no more
From now on, mama, I said, "I'm gonna let you go"
