Wouldn't you know that fellow'd get get somewhere like that. He came into Greenville when I was home on leave and he gives a dance, There were posters up and everything about him being Blind Boy number two. The people there wouldn't let me go until I got and played a number and the last time I saw Brownie after I played my number was him walking out the door and going to catch a bus out of town. - Baby Tate speaking of Brownie McGhee, from the liner notes to "The Blues of Baby Tate, See What You Done Done" Bluesville # 1072

Here's a repost of my take -mostly inspired by MJH, although I play in a different position and with a few more chords.

Nice playing and arrangement, Pan.  I sure like the moving bass lines at the end of the form.
All best,
Johnm

Giving a go at the words to Willie Brown's version. Not sure about the last line to the 7th verse ("Now, heck, you?ve got ways like forty cannonballs.") Any ideas?


Make Me A Pallet On The Floor
(as sung by Willie Brown)

Make me down a pallet on your floor.
Now, won?t you make me down one pallet on your floor.
Now, won?t you lay me down one pallet on your floor.
Now, make it so your man won?t ever know.

Now, won?t you make me one bunk upside your wall.
Now, won?t you make me up one bunk upside your wall.
Won?t you lay me down one bunk upside your wall.
You gonna make it now, babe, just as long as I am tall.

Oh, I love you babe ?cause you so nice and brown.
Now, babe, I love you now ?cause you so nice and brown.
I love you babe ?cause you so nice and brown.
?Cause you tailor made and ain?t no hand-me-down.

I love you, tell the world I do.
I mean, I love you, and I?ll tell the world I do.
Now, babe, I love you, I?ll tell the world I do.
I don?t love no one today like I love you.

I?m goin? away to worry you off my mind.
Now, babe, I?m goin? away to worry you off my mind.
Now, babe, I?m goin?, just to worry you off my mind.
?Cause you keep me worried and bothered all the time.

Now, mama, just as sho as two and two is fo.
I mean, just as sho as two and two is fo.
Just as sho, now babe, as two and two is fo.
I?m goin? get me another and don?t want you no more.

Now, I love you mama ?cause you so long and tall.
I mean, I love you ?cause you so long and tall.
Now, babe, I love you ?cause you so long and tall.
Now, heck, you?ve got ways like forty cannonballs.

I?m goin? away just to worry you off my mind.
Now, babe, I?m goin? away just to worry you off my mind.
Now, I?m goin? away, just to worry you off my mind.
?Cause you keep me worried and bothered all the time.

Now, won?t you make me down one pallet on your floor.
Now, won?t you make me down one pallet on your floor.
Now, won?t you lay me a pallet on your floor.
Now, make it so your man won?t ever know.
