​It's Tight Like That

This song is by Lead Belly and appears on the album Lead Belly's Last Sessions (1994).

Oh it's tight like that Whoo!, tight like that Whoo!
In sum deed, oh it's tight like that

Oh it's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed* oh it's tight like that

You take Sal and I'll take Jane
They both good lookin', but they ain't the same
It's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh it's tight like that

If you wanna to see a preacher laugh
Change a dollar and give him a half
Oh he's tight like that Whoo! He's tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Some folks said that a preacher won't steal
But I caught two in my corn-field
It's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh it's tight like that

One had a bag, and one had a sack
Gone to cornfield catch a lot of rats
It's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh tight like that

Some folks said that a preacher won't steal
I caught two in my chicken-roost
It's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh it's tight like that

A rooster and a hound and didn't have ah stoop
Trying to catch a rooster to make rooster soup
It's tight like that Whoo! tight like that Whoo!
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Preacher and rooster had a terrible fight,
Preacher knocked the rooster clean out of sight
He's tight like that Whoo! tight like that whoo!
In some deed, oh it's tight like that

Preacher told the rooster, "That will be all right.
Meet you at the hen house 'morrow night
It's tight like that whoo! be tight like that Whoo!
In some deed, oh it's tight like that

Oh it's tight like that whoo!, tight like that whoo!
Some a talkin', oh it's tight like that

The ole frog jumped in the bottom of the well
Oh by God he's jumped into hell
He's tight like that whoo!, tight like that whoo!
In some deed, oh it's tight like that

Funniest thing I ever seen
Tomcat sitting on a sewing machine
He's tight like that whoo!, he tight like that whoo!
In some deed, oh it's tight like that

Oh it's tight like that whoo! tight like that whoo!
In some deed, oh it's tight like that

Spoken: "Tight like that". That's an old time, a long time number 2 back down home. I used to go back to dances and I'd play and sing that you know. Gals would start to jumpin'.
