Airy Man Blues-Papa Charlie Jackson
D position, standard tuning

Now, look here, Mr. Bill, says you think you've been sharp
You know Miss Delinah done broke your heart
She put you out, she told you to go
To never come back to her house no more
So now you're here, tryin' to throw me down
You know you're the worst new man in town
You keep on talkin' and you surely will
Says, you'll never get the ten dollar bill

REFRAIN: Oh, you can keep on talkin', little darling babe,
But don't need no airy man
I want these browns at Illinois as trained
To thoroughly understand
That you can bring in my wood, you can bring in my coal
You can iron my shirts, you can bless my soul
You can get yourself together, you can be out with the weather
I don't need no airy man

Now, there was an old lady and her husband, they took a
Stroll just the other day
She walked all out on State Street, just to
Pass the time away
Said, she walked into the hop shop, darling, babe, and
These are the words she say,
She's gonna smoke a rope of hop, a-gonna drink her tea,
"Tell the Chin'man bring me hop for me."

REFRAIN: Oh, you can keep on talkin', little darling babe,
But don't need no airy man
I want these browns at Illinois as trained
To thoroughly understand
That you can bring in my wood, you can bring in my coal
You can iron my shirts, you can bless my soul
You can get yourself together, you can be out with the weather
I don't need no airy man
