Stack o' dollars
Stack o' dollars
Long as I am tall
Hey now, mama get some

Stack o' dollars
Just long as I am tall
If you be my woman
You can have them all

I heard a-rumblin'
I heard a-rumblin'
Way down in the ground
Hey now mama, an I
I heard a-rumblin'
Way down in the ground
Must of been somebody
Slowly jumpin' down

See two women
See two women
Walkin' hand by hand
Hey now mama, you see
See two women, they
Walkin' hand by hand
They just spinned up something, Lord
Out to fool some man

Went on the mountain
Went on the mountain
Looked down in the sea
Hey now mama, an I
Went on the mountain, an I
Looked down in the sea
Little girls had my womans
Lord, an the blues had me

Baby done quit me
Baby done quit me
Ain't said a mumblin' word
Hey now mama
Baby's done quit me
Ain't said a mumblin' word
It were nothin' that she know'd, Lord
It's something she had heard.

~
