​Shake, Shake Mama (Cherry Ball)

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Blues Guitar (1994).

Oh, ain't gonna give you no more cherry ball
Oh, ain't gonna give you no more cherry ball
You gone drunk and showed your Santa Claus

Oh, a little bitty woman, hips just like a snake
Oh, a little bitty woman, her hip just like a snake
Baby, it really take

Oh, late last night my love come fallin' down
Me and my baby on our last go-'round

Oh, shake, shake mama, I'll buy you a diamond ring
Oh, shake, shake mama, I'll buy you a diamond ring
You don't shake, ain't gonna buy you a doggone thing

Oh, my clutch start to slippin', carb's won't even sing
Oh, my clutch start to slippin', my carb's won't even sing
Blues in the compression, fire my piston ring

Oh, rider, you ain't foolin' me
Look-y here, rider, you ain't foolin' me
You been slippin' to your old-time used-to-be

Oh, I like my babe but I don't like her teddy bear
Oh, I like my woman but I don't like her teddy bear
I'm gonna buy her a box-back, maybe it'll work
