Well, goodbye Red
Now, I ain't gon' cry
Now, goodbye Red
Now, I ain't gonna cry
Well now, I ain't gonna frown
I wouldn't tell you no lie


Well, my little Red
She just don't know
Well-a my little Red
She just don't know
Well now, she says she loves me
She's wild about Mr. So and So

Well, I ain't gonna worry
About the way you do
Well, the way you treat me
Comin' back home to you
Well, I ain't gonna worry
Red, about the way you do now

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, I ain't gonna frown
I ain't gonna make no noise
Now, I ain't gonna frown
I ain't gonna make no noise
Well, I ain't gonna bring
You'll have none-a-these Santa toys

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, I waved my hand
Red, shook her head
I waved my hand
Red, shook her head
Well, I'm sick an tired of Red
Gonna go to bed

Now tell me, Red
What you want me to do?
Now look-it-here, Red
What you want me to do, now?
Now do you think I can love you
And be yo' little dog, too now?

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, after a while
Be all over, now
Well, after a while
Be all over, now
Now because didn't have nobody
Raise no sand, now how.

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, fare you well
Well, fare you well
Red, fare you well
Now, little girl
Well now, I thought you loved me
But I take you for my pal.

(harmonica & instrumental)
