​What Is That She Got?

This song is by Johnnie Temple and appears on the album Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order, Volume 3 (1940-1949) (1994).

I went to my baby like a lion, came away like a doggone lamb
I went to my baby like a lion, came away like a doggone lamb
Lord, I wondered at what is that she got, Lord, that make me be so calm

I looked at my woman like a lion, ready to tear her down
I looked at my woman like a lion, Lord, ready to tear her down
She says: Come here, baby, I declare let's lay back down

Better come here, somebody, help me to find my way back home
Lord, come here, somebody, help me to find my way back home
I was cruel to my woman, but I declare, I know that I was wrong

My baby left me this morning, I walked the street like a tiger in the woods
My baby left me this morning, I walked the street like a tiger in the woods
If my baby come back to me, I declare, now I'll always be good
