Alabama Blues-Robert Wilkins
C position, standard tuning

I'll tell you, girl, I'm gonna tell you now
If you don't want me, please don't dog me around
If you don't want me, don't dog me around

My home ain't here, it's in most any old town
My home ain't here, it's in most any old town
My home ain't here, it's most any old town

I'm goin' up on the mountain and look down on the sea
Saw a bullyin' alligator, she was doin' that shivaree
Saw a bullyin' alligator doin' the shivaree

Tell me, friend, ever since that bullyin' Stack been made
Kansas City, Missouri, has been her regular trade
Kansas City, Missouri, been her regular trade

The Kate's in the bend, the Stack is turnin' around and 'round
The stern wheel knockin', friend, I'm Alabama bound
The stern wheel knockin', I'm Alabama bound

My mama told me, an' old papa told me, too
Said, "Brownskin women, son, gonna be the death of you"
Said, "Brownskin women, gonna be the death of you"

I told mama last night, friends, and papa the night before
"If brownskin women kill me, mama, let me go"
"If brownskin women kill me, mama, let me go"

When I leave you that time, mama, I won't be back no more
When I leave you that time, mama, I won't be back no more
When I leave that time, mama, won't be back no more

I ain't comin' back here to worry you and papa so
I won't be back here to worry you and papa so
I won't be back here to worry you and papa so

I walked off and left my mother standing in the floor
She's cryin' to me, "Son, please son, don't you go"
She's cryin' to me, "Son, please don't you go"
