Tommy Mcclennan – Down To Skin And Bones lyrics

I say, my little woman
Got me down to skin an bone
I say, my little woman
Got me down to skin an bone
She done got me to the place
I hate to see my baby leave home

Now, she leave me early mo'nin
She don't come home 'till night
She leave me early in the mo'nin
Don't come home 'till night
She know, I know, she done somethin'
Wer'n't 'llowed when she know it ain't right
(in there)

Hmm, think because I love you
Hmm, gon' be yo' dog
Don't think because I love you
I'm gon' be yo' dog
I'll drink muddy water
An I'll roost in a hollow log
(end at 2: 30)

Hmm, ain't know why I should
Hmm-hmm, don't know whys I should
'Cause you go wit' ev'ry man
In around the neighborhood

'Play it right, now'

(guitar to end)
