Rufus Thomas – 6-3-8 (That's The Number To Play) lyrics

I woke up early this morning
Hand in hand [Incomprehensible]
The woman I love was at the head of my bed stand
The landlord wanted his rent

I went out on the corner
To see what I could do
I guess I get to play the races
I'm passin' it on to you

6-3-8 is the number today
6-3-8 is the number you better play

I don't believe in Gypsy's
Readin' out the palm of my hand
Don't believe in lady luck
She just wouldn't understand

I believe in Joe
Down by the Candy store
You would too, good people
If you know just what I know

6-3-8 is the number today
6-3-8 is the number you better play
Yeah, you know

Rusty is pretty fast
I just wanna prove you could
I do hope, you heard what I said
'Cause there ain't no okay do

There ain't no way for you to catch him
That is plain to see
But if you want to get your Rusty
You better listen to me

6-3-8 is the number to play
6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today

Come on, come on now
Come on, come on now
Come on now

6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today
6-3-8 is the number you better play

Come on, all y'all
Come on, don't walk me y'all
I said, come on y'all
I said, come on y'all

6-3-8 is the number you better play
6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today

I ain't lyin'
I ain't lyin'

6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today
6-3-8 is the number you better play

6-3-8 is the number you better play
6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today

6-3-8 is the number that's comin' today
6-3-8 is the number you better play
