(instrumental intro)

I keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa gonna catch you soon
I keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
I'm gonna catch you just as sho' as you born
Now, I was sittin' in the corner
Just as still as a lamb
I wasn't too still to hear the back do' slam, now

You keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa gonna catch you soon
You keep a sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa gonna catch you soon
You keep a-sniffin', darlin' hidin' on me
I'm gonna catch you just as sho' as you born

You got to treat me right just let me be
'Cause I can beat you doin'
What you're tryin' to do to me
Now, you keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa's gonna catch you soon

(harp & instrumental)

A-keep a sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa gonna catch you soon
You keep a sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
I'm gonna catch you just as sho' as you born

You got to treat me right just let me be
'Cause I can beat you doin'
What you're tryin' to do to me, now
You keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa's gonna catch you soon

(harp & instrumental)

Ooh, you keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
A-papa gonna catch you soon
You keep sniffin' darlin', hidin' on me
I'm gonna catch you just as sho' as you born

Now ya don't steal silver
And you don't steal gold
You hang around the big shot
An steal his jelly roll

Now you, keep a sniffin', darlin' hidin' on me
A-papa's gonna catch you.

(harmonica end)
