Mississippi Fred Mcdowell – That's Alright lyrics

You know, that's alright, baby
Baby, that's alright for you
That's alright, baby
Lord, that's alright for you
You know I don't wan' take nothing


You know, I wouldn't take nothin', baby
Oh baby, for my journey home

You know, I'm goin' down south, baby
Lord, I b'lieve I will car' my hurt
I'm goin' down South
I b'lieve I will car' my hurt
Tell my teasin' brown, I swear mama
Lordy, these other girls

I'm goin' down south, baby
Lord, I mean car' my hurt
Tell my teasin' brown
Baby, Lord, Lordy
I swear, Lordy


You know, I bought me a bull dog
Baby, I put him in my backyard
I'm 'onna buy me a bull dog
Put him in my backyard
Lord, keep my baby from goin'
Slippin' off in the dark

Lord, might buy me a bull dog
And I'll put him in my backyard.

(guitar to end)
