I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Baby, we got to have a little talk
I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Verse 2
I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed, called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down and sleep in a hollow log
Verse 3
I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I cannot trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water
Verse 4
Yes, Baby, we got to have a little talk
Said I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Verse 5
I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed and they called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Verse 6
Because I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I can't trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water
