Various Artists – Why Don't You Do Right - Lil Green lyrics

You had plenty money
In 1922
But you let other women
Make a fool a-you

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
An get me some money, too

You sittin' down wond'rin
What it's all about
If you ain't got no money
They going to put you out

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
An get me some money, too

If you had prepared
20 years ago
You wouldn't of been driftin'
From do' to do'

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
An get me some money, too

(guitar & piano)

I fell for yo' jive
An I took you in
Now, all you got to offer me's
A drink of gin

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
An get me some money, too

~
Note: This song was recorded 'Weed Smoker's Dream'
By Joe Mccoy (ex-husband of Memphis Minnie).
