Now, I'm goin' to Brownsville an
Take that right hand road
Now, I'm goin' to Brownsville
Take that right hand road
Lord, I ain't gon' stop walkin'
'Till I get in sweet mama's do'

Now, the girl I'm lovin'
She got the great, long, curly hair
Now, the girl I'm lovin'
She's got the great, long, curly hair
An her mama an her papa
They sho' don't 'llow me there

If you catch my duffel
Hangin' upside yo' wall
If you catch my duffel
Hangin' upside yo' wall
Now, you know by that, babe
I need my ashes hauled

Now, what cha' gon do, babe
Yo' doughroller gone?
What you gon do, babe
Yo' doughroller gone?
Go in yo' kitchen, Lordy
Cook until she comes.
