Now, I can't see why my baby sleeps so sound
Well now, I can't see why my baby sleeps so sound
She must-a have smoked her reefer
An it's bound to carry her down

When I left her this mornin'
Now, I left her sleepin' sound
When I left her this mornin'
I left her sleepin' sound
The only way she could catch me
Is to run like a fool bloodhound

(guitars & washbrd & bass) 'Yas, yas'

She said she was gon' leave me
Goin' to some no good town
She said she was gon' leave me
Goin' to some no good town
She was a rough cuttin' woman
She didn't like to break 'em down

If you got a good woman
Mens, please don't take her around
If you got a good woman
Mens, please don't take her around
She will get full of reefers
And raise sand all over this town.

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
