​Sweet Patunia Blues

This song is by Willie Baker and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by ​Charley Lincoln and ​Willie Baker.

I got a gal, she got a Rolls Royce, she didn't get off by usin' her voice
I'm wild about my 'Tunia, only thing I crave
I'm wild about my 'Tunia, only thing I crave
Well sweet Petunia's gonna carry me to my grave

Every time my gal walk down the street, all the boys holler, "Ain't 'Tuni' sweet?"
Now, I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
Well, sweet Petuni', gonna carry me to my grave

I got a gal, she lives up on the hill, you can't get her 'tuni', she's got a automobile
Now, I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
Well, sweet Petuni', gonna carry me to my grave

Well, I woke up this mornin', half past four, a long tall gal 's rappin' at my door
She was singin', "Sweet Petunia, only thing I crave"
She was singin', "Sweet Petunia, only thing I crave
Well, sweet Petunia, gonna carry me to my grave"

If all the 'tuni' was brought to a test, a long tall gal can sling it the best
Now, I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
Well, sweet Petuni', gonna carry me to my grave

Tell all you mens, I been well-blessed, if I get what I wants, you can have the rest
Now, I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
I'm wild about 'Tunia, only thing I crave
Well, sweet Petuni's gonna carry me to my grave
