Pete Wheatstraw – Peetie Wheatstraw lyrics

Now this is Peetie Wheatstraw, remember

People wanna know where do I prowl

This is Peetie Wheatstraw

People wanna know where do I prowl

Sometimes I prowl a far distant land

Sometimes I prowl on the rising clouds

An now I once was a good boy

Mama, I was good all over town

I say, I once was a good boy

Babe, I was good all over town

Well-well, nar' I don't see why

People tried to slam me down

When I first met you, little baby

Baby, this is the lie you told

I know when I first met you, baby

This is the lie you told

You said now you could get my money, baby

And then I will be made of silver and gold

(instrumental)

'What you gonna do, Charlie

You gonna play for me or just for money? '

'Money! '

Now what are you gon' do little baby, um-mm-mm

When your road gets dogged like mine?

Now what are you gon' do, baby

Now when your road gets dogged like mine?

Honey, now you would be worried

Mama now an bothered all the time

Now if anybody ask you baby, hmm

Honey, now who compose this song?

Well-well-well, now if anybody asks you

Mama, who compose this song?

Now-now, will you please tell 'em this is, Peetie Wheatstraw

Well now he have been here and gone.
