Hold Them Puppies - Leroy Carr
Piano in Eb, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in D position, standard tuning, at Eb

Nights so lonesome and the days so long
Oh the nights is so lonesome and the days so long
Ain't had no lovin' since you've been gone

If you see my baby, tell her to hurry home
If you see my baby, tell her to hurry home
Ain't had no "hmmm-mmm", since she has been gone

You put the puppies[1] on me mama, you drove me crazy too
You put the puppies on me mama, you drove me crazy too
You done made me love you, what can I do?

Won't you tell my baby, to hurry back to me?
Won't you tell my baby, to hurry back to me?
She's got the best old "hmmm-mmm", I ever did see

Won't you tell my baby, to hurry back to me?
Won't you tell my baby, to hurry back to me?
She's got the best old lovin' that I ever did see

[SOLO]

You can pull your dress babe, up above your knee
You can pull your dress babe, up above your knee
You can strut your stuff babe, but don't mess with me

You gonna leave me, you gonna leave me, you gonna leave me blue
You gonna leave me, you gonna leave me, you gonna leave me blue
I want some of your lovin', don't care what you do

Notes

  1. "Puppies" = mud puppies = salamanders, an ingredient in folk love potions in the early part of the 20th century
