My mama dead, Lord
Papa can't be found
My mama dead an, Lord
Papa can't be found
I ain't got me nobody
Throw my arms around

Yon' come the devil, we gonna
Set this town on fire
Yon' come the devil
Gonna start this town on fire
'llow me a chance comes up
Until I bid this town, goodbye

I got ways like a devil
Sleep in the lion's den
I got ways like a devil
Sleep in a lion's den
Doggin' fer 'em, steal to get 'em
Bought her ticket in

Let me tell you, mama
What you said last night
Lay down on my bedside
Try to treat me right

Lord, I'm goin up the country
But cryin won't make me stay
I'm goin up the country
Cryin' won't make me stay
More you cry
The further I'll ride away.

~
