Hollandale Blues-Sam Chatmon
A position, standard tuning

Says, I'd rather be in Hollandale, baby, I mean, any small town I know
Says, I'd rather be in Hollandale, woman, than any doggone small town I know
Said, it take the Chief Police, pretty mama, man, to make me go

Says, when you go over on Blue Front, sweet baby, and just don't find me there (Spoken: Oh, I'm bein' to where they sell all that whiskey, woman!)
Ah, when you go over on Blue Front, mama, I mean, just don't find me there
Say, you can bet your bottom dollar, I'm really countin' cross ties somewhere

Says, 61 run through Hollandale, baby, and it ain't but one doggone stop
Says, 61 run through Hollandale, sweet baby, and I swear it ain't but one stop
Say, when you go over on Blue Front, sweet baby, I mean you have to squeeze them 'til they oughta stop

Sayin', I got so doggone many women in Hollandale, 'til I don't know who I love (Spoken: Oh boy, I'm the admirer of them curly-haired women!)
I got so doggone many women in Hollandale, 'til I don't know who I love
Says, they gang around me, pretty mama, like the angels up above

Says, I'd rather be in Hollandale, baby, than any other place I know
I'd rather be in Hollandale, sweet baby, I mean, any other place I know
Well now, it take the woman I love, pretty mama, man, to make me dry just so

Well, when you come to Hollandale, baby, and don't have yourself some fun
It's just because you ain't got no, a-doggone mon'
All you got to do, have yourself a ball
Then if you got a dollar you heared all the gals squall,
"Here come that moneyman, I mean, he's dropped down in this land.
I mean, now he done come to Hollandale, pretty mama, I mean, floatin' in the plan."

Well, Hollandale is the place, pretty baby, I always long to be
I mean, Hollandale is the place, pretty mama, always long to be
Well, I could stay away from there longer but I got a cool, kind mama waitin' for me
