(harmonica & instrumental intro)

I want you to hold me in yo' arms, baby
A-take me home with you
Love me, love me, baby just
Like you used to do

An I want your love rollin'
My love, roll me ov'r slow an easy
I want you love me, baby
An I won't want to love no mo'

I want you to take me in yo' car, baby
An ride me right o'vr town
Love me, love me, baby
Till my love come down

I want you to roll me ov'r, baby
My love, roll me ov'r slow an easy
But I want you, love me baby
An I won't wanna love no more, now

'You got it Big Bill, take it an keep it there'

(instrumental - all)

'Yes, honey honey!'

'Yes, yo' honey is good isn't it?'

I want you to roll me, roll me, baby
Like yo' grandfather used to roll his wagon wheel
Roll me, roll me, baby
You don't know how good that make me feel

I want you to roll me ov'r, baby
Then I gonna have to roll me ov'r slow an easy
I want you to roll me, baby
An I won't want no love no mo'

Well, I'm goin' way back down in Jackson
Way back where I belong
Because this weekly lie about deliverin' job
God, knows I can't last long

'Cause this woman don't love me, no baby
She won't love Sonny Boy, real slow an easy
Now an she won't say I even talk with ya
That I won't even wanna love no mo'.
