​Sweet Thang

This song is by Ernest Tubb And Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Ernest Tubb And Loretta Lynn Singin' Again (1967).

This song is a cover of "Sweet Thang" by ​Nat Stuckey.
I slipped out of the house about sundown
While Mama was a-washin' her hair
And you can bet your bottom dollar she'll come lookin' for me
When she finds that I'm not there
And if she catches her sweet thang runnin' around
I know there'll be the devil to pay
She'll come blowin' like a cyclone right through that door
And I can hear exactly what she'll say

"Well, has anybody here seen Sweet Thang?
I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
'Cause when my Sweet Thang is out tomcattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play
I wanna tell all you barroom roses
If my Sweet Thang does have a bite
You'd better take my advice, and if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes"

I gave my baby all my money on payday
Except a little she don't know that I got
'Cause there's a cute little waitress at the corner cafe
And she seems to like me quite a lot
While we were sittin' in the back booth a-havin' a talk
She believed in every word that I said
When the door blew open, Loretta walked in
Yellin' loud enough to wake the dead

Well, has anybody here seen Sweet Thang
I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
'Cause when my sweet thang is out tomcattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play
You'd better take my advice, and if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes"
