Muddy Waters – 32-20 Blues lyrics

I'm gonna get my 32-20, my baby she ridin' around in a
V8 Ford
Lord, I'm gonna get my 32-20, my little girl ridin'
Around in a V8 Ford
Well, you know it musta been a while ago, man, somebody
Went out my backdoor

That's the reason I carry my 32-20, that the reason I
Carries it ev'ryday
Lord, that's the reason I carry my 32-20, that's the
Reason I carries it ev'ryday
Well now, you know how she been runnin' around here,
I'd a-swear somebody gonna fade away

Lord, I got a lil' into trouble, down on Mr. Stovall's
Lord, I have got in a little trouble, way down on Mr.
Stovall's place
Well now, you know my baby she been runnin' around here
And I had to sit down and change my ways

I got a pretty little thing, livin' down by Frairs
I got a pretty little thing, she's livin' down on
Friars Fairs town
Now you know the reason I carry that 32-20, man, I
Don't want my little baby ridin' around

Play that thing boy!

Well that's why I tote my 32-20, little gal, ev'rywhere
I go
Yeah, that's why I tote my 32-20, baby, most ev'rywhere
I go
Well now, you know I'm tired of my baby runnin' around
Here ridin', man, down in a V8 Ford
