I was down in Savannah
Eatn' Cream and Bannanas
When the heat just made me faint
I began to get crosseyed
I thought I was lost
I'd begun to see things as they ain't.
As the relatives gathered to see what's the matter
The doctor came to see was I fine.
But the doctor said give him jug band music,
It seems to make him feel just fine.
I was told a little tail about a skinny as a rail
L. A. Put cowboy with a headache
He was hung up in the desert swappin' rats
And tryn' ta get a drink of water with his knees gettin' mud caked
And I'll tell you and exceptance how he stumbled into Memphis Tenassee
Lookin' hard and gettin' dust baked.
We gave 'I'm little water
