Statesboro' Blues - Deep Purple

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low;
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve baby, to turn uncle john from your door.

I woke up this morning, I had them statesboro blues,
I woke up this morning, had them statesboro blues.
Well, I looked over in the corner, and grandpa seemed to have them too.

Well my momma died and left me,
My poppa died and left me,
I aint good looking baby,
Want someone sweet and kind.

Im goin to the country, baby do you wanna go?
But if you cant make it baby, your sister lucille said she wanna go.
(and I sure will take her).

I love that woman, better than any woman Ive ever seen;
Well, I love that woman, better than any woman Ive ever seen.
Well, now, she treat me like a king, yeah, yeah, yeah,
I treat her like a dog gone queen.

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve babe, to turn uncle john from your door.
