Verse 1
Well, I laid down, down last night
Well, I tried to take my rest
Notion struck me last night, babe
I b'lieve I take your stroll out, h'out west
Take your stroll out, h'out west
Take your stroll out, h'out west
Take a stroll out west
Take a stroll out west
Verse 2
Well, if I were a catfish, mama
I says, swimmin' deep down in the blue sea
Have these girls now, sweet mama
Settin' out, settin' out hooks for po' me
Settin' out hooks for-h'or me
Settin' out hooks for-h'or me
Settin' down hook for me
Settin' down hook for me
Settin' down hook for me
Verse 3
Well, I went down, yes!
Down to the church house, yes!
Well, I was called on me to pray
Fell on my knees, now
Mama, I didn't know one
Not a word to-who say
Not a word to-who say
Not a word to-who
Not a word to-who
Not a word to say

I'm gonna write, write me a letter, baby

Little old thing, on po' me
Little old thing, on po' me
Little old thing, on po' me

Little old thing for me
Little old thing for me
H'oh, little thing for me.
