Big Leg Mama (John Russell Blues)

This song is by Kokomo Arnold and appears on the compilation album Kokomo Arnold, Vol. 2 (1935-1936) (1991).

Now it's mama mama mama, please keep your big legs down
Now it's mama mama mama, please keep your big legs down
So I can stop old John Russell, Lord from hanging around

Says I load coal in the morning, and I cut corn late at night
Says I load coal in the morning, and I cut corn late at night
When I come on home, and you and John Russell sure don't treat me right

Says I hate like the devil, to declare war in my happy home
Says I hate like the devil, to declare war in my happy home
Says I loaned you my money, and then you stole my gal and gone

Now you going to hear thunder and lightning, from the end of my pistol barrel
Now you going to hear thunder and lightning, from the end of my pistol barrel
Says you stole my money, then you turned around and took my gal

Now my old back is a-breaking, and my lights is a-burning low
Now my old back is a-breaking, and my lights is a-burning low
When I load this carload of coal captain, I sure ain't going load no more
