Down in Richmond, leanin' on my walkin' cane
I was down in Richmond, leanin' on my walkin' cane
Policeman come by, asked me what's my name

"Now, my name is written in the bosom of my shirt
Lord, my name is written in the bosom of my shirt
I'm a solid lover, do not have to work."

White folks, white folks, don't work my brown so hard
White folks, white folks, don't work my brown so hard
She's a solid lover but she did not have a job

SOLO

Now if I get drunk, baby, and staggle up to your door
Lord, if I get drunk, baby, staggle up to your door
And if I ain't welcome, show me the way and I'll go

SOLO

I don't want no woman, can't she neither rob and steal
I don't want no woman, can't she neither rob and steal
I'd rather see her working, Lord, in some farmer's field
