Sonny Boy Williamson I – Peach Orchard Mama lyrics

Peach orchard mama
You swore wasn't nobody gotten near yo' peaches but me
Peach orchard mama-ooo
Swore wasn't nobody got near yo' peaches but me
Well, you want yo' women work in your orchard
When I keep your orchard clean

You done got me to the place
I hate to see that evenin' sun go down

'Play it a long time, boys'

Yeah, man
I hate to see that evenin' sun go down
Well, when I get up in the mo'nin'
Woo-well, peach orchard mama
She's on my mind

Got a man to buy yo' groceries
And another Joe to pay your rent
He's got a man who buy yo' groceries
An another Joe to payin yo' rent
Well, you got me workin' in yo' orchard
You-ooo well-well, an bring you ev'ry cents

'Play the one'

'i wonder what maw-wee they wan' play? '

Sometimes she make me happy
An again, she makes me cry
Sometimes she makes me happy
An again, she makes me cry
Yes, again I want a peach orchard mama
Hee-well-well, I wish to God that she would die.
