Otis Redding – Scratch My Back lyrics

[Originally by Slim Harpo]

[Harmonica with words spoken through song]

Aww I'm itchy
And I don't know where to scratch
Come here baby
Scratch my back
I know you can do it
So baby get to it

Aww you're workin with it now
You got me feelin' so good
Just lookin' up to the sun now baby

This little girl sho' knows how'd scratch

Now you're doin' the chicken scratch

Aww it's lookin' good baby

Just gettin' scratchy

That's what I'm talkin' bout
