Long made it possible for me to get on records, so what little money he did take from me, if any at all, he was entitled to it. He didn't take something from me - Brownie McGhee

Hi all,
I just discovered this cover by Johnny Temple, who recorded the song as "Fix It Up And Go".  There were some pretty high-powered Jazz players of the era on this recording--Henry "Red" Allen on trumpet, Buster Bailey on clarinet and Lil Hardin Armstrong on piano.  Here is "Fix It Up And Go":



INTRO

The rooster chewed tobacco, the hen dipped snuff
The pullet ain't grown, but she knows her stuff
REFRAIN: She got to fix it up and go, she got to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

I had a woman, built up for speed
Hair on her head like a Japanese
REFRAIN: She had to fix it up and go, she had to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

I got a hot dog, it ain't cold
It's just right enough to fit your soul
REFRAIN: You got to fix it up and go, you got to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

SOLO

I believe somebody fishing in my pond
Catching my perches, grindin' up their bones
REFRAIN: They got to fix it up and go, they got to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

I woke up this mornin', 'bout the break of day
Felt on the pillow where my baby used to lay
REFRAIN: She had to fix it up and go, she had to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

Well, the sticks and stones break my bones
I'd be a fool if I let you go home
REFRAIN: She got to fix it up and go, she got to fix it up and go
All you high-powered women, you got to fix it up and go

All best,
Johnm
