Various Artists – Ride And Roll - Sonny Terry lyrics

(boogie woogie)

Spoken 'Gimme yo ticket
Long as my right arm!'

Ask the red cap porter
Now, help me with my heavy load
Ask the red cap porter
Now, help me with my heavy load
'Cause the woman I'm lovin'
She's far on down the road

Well, I know my baby
Bound to jump and shout
Well, I know my baby
Bound for jump and shout
When that bus roll up
Ol' Sonny come walkin' out

I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonna roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonna roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna find my baby
To carry this heavy load

I'm gonna write me a letter
I'm gonna mail it in the air
I'm gonna write me a letter
I'm gonna mail it in the air
Wanna let you men know
I got me a woman, somewhere

Well, I know my baby
Bound to love me, some
Well, I know my baby
Bound to love me, some
Throw her arms all around me
Like a circle 'round the sun

I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonna roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonna roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna find my baby
To carry this heavy load
(harmonica)

Catch the Grayhound bus
While I ride him
'Till his tongue drag the ground
Catch the Grayhound bus
While I ride him
'Till his tongue drag the ground
Wanna find my baby
Don't think she can be found

I want to ride, ride, ride
I wanna to roll, roll, roll
I wanna to ride, ride, ride
I wanna to roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna find my baby
Carry this heavy load

I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonnna roll, roll, roll
I'm gonna ride, ride, ride
I'm gonnna roll, roll, roll
Wanna find my baby
Carry this heavy load.

~
