R.L. Burnside – Poor Black Mattie lyrics

Poor Black Mattie ain't got a change in clothes
Girl got drunk, close that door
Poor Black Mattie ain't got change o' clothes
Girl got drunk, throwed her clothes outdoor

Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair
Reason I'm goin', baby, there
Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair
Reason I'm goin', know my baby there

Need no heater fireplace by my bed
Women I got cherry red
Need no heater fireplace by my bed
Woman I got, keep me cherry red
Woman I got, keep me cherry red
