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 ain't good looking, baby
But I'm somewhat sweet and kind
I'm goin' to the country
Baby, do you wanna go?
But if you can't make it baby
Your sister Lucille said she wanna go
And I sure will take her
I love that woman
Better than any woman I've ever seen
Well, I love that woman
Better than any woman I've ever seen
Well, now, she treat me
Like a king, yeah, yeah, yeah
And she look 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, baby
To turn Uncle John from your door
