Blues in the Bottle

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Country Blues (2002).

Blues in the bottle, blues in the bottle, stopper in my hand, doggone you
Blues in the bottle, stopper in my hand
Now if you want to be my woman, you got to come under my command

You couldn't stand it, you couldn't stand it, oughta stayed at home doggone you
You couldn't stand it, you oughta stayed at home
Pick up chips for your grandma, work on your grandpa's farm

Ah, baby, oh baby, where did you stay last night, doggone you
Tell me baby, where did you stay last night
You never come home this morning till the sun was shinin' bright

She say daddy, looka here daddy, don't you raise no sand, doggone you
Looka here daddy, don't you raise no sand
I don't ask you 'bout no woman, don't you ask me 'bout my man

If I had my pistol, I had my pistol, you down in the woods, pretty mama
If I had my pistol, mama in the woods
I'd shoot you up so bad, you couldn't do your man no good

Jog on the rabbit, jog up the rabbit, run him one solid mile, oh lord
Jog up the rabbit, run him a solid mile
Know that rabbit got down, cried like a child

Don't come tomorrow, don't come tomorrow, next day'll be my goal, doggone gal
Don't come tomorrow, next day'll be my goal
I'm goin' up the road, say 'bout a mile or so

Blues in the bottle, blues in the bottle, stopper in my hand, doggone you
Blues in the bottle, stopper in my hand
Now if you want to be my woman, you got to come under my command
