Goin' down South, I'm going down South

Jumper On The Line

soundclip


by R.L. Burnside
recording of 1997

from Sound Machine Groove (HMG 6501), copyright notice

See my jumper on, hangin' out on the line
Know by that, something on my mind
I wouldn't be here, baby, if it hadn't been for you

Way down here, way you wanna do
Fix my supper, baby, let me go to bed
Guess white lightnin' done gone to my head
Guess white lightnin' done gone to my head

Peaches


Traditional
recording of 1994

from Too Bad Jim (Epitaph 80307), copyright notice

Don't your peaches sure look mellow, hanging way up in your tree
I like your peaches so well, they have taken effect on me
I'm gonna get your stepladder, baby, I'm gonna climb up on your top limb

If I get among your yelle'r peaches, it's gonna be too bad, Jim
Every time I start to climb your tree, babe, I wonder what make you smile
Your want me to climb your tree ever since you was a chil'

Poor Black Mattie


by R.L. Burnside
recording of 1997

from Acoustic Stories (M.C. 34), copyright notice

Poor Black Mattie ain't got a change in clothes, girl got drunk, close that door
Poor Black Mattie, ain't got change o' clothes, girl got drunk, throwed her clothes outdoors
Poor Black Mattie…

Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair, reason I'm goin', baby there
Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair, reason I'm goin', know my baby there

Need no heater fireplace by my bed, women I got cherry red
Need no heater fireplace by my bed, woman I got keeps me cherry red
