Jack's house was sittin' in a old cemetary... He used to tell me, 'Boy, sometimes when I be out here, I have them jokers cuttin' up out there in them graveyards.' 'What you be doin' Jack?' 'Boy, playin' that guitar and havin' a durn good time out there' - Jack Owens, remembered by Jimmy Holmes, Living Blues #137

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
