Gene E Greatest Blues Songs (Cont.) (25) Lyr Add: AIRPLANE BLUES^^ 31 Dec 97

Time for a song! I love this one.

Airplane Blues
Sleepy John Estes (08/03/37)

I'mo get in my airplane. I'mo get in my airplane
I'mo ride all over, I'mo ride all over your town.
Then if I spy the woman I'm lovin', po John, po John gonna let this airplane down.

Here's my hand, here's my hand,
You can lead me where you want, You can lead me where you want me to go.
Then after you lead me wrong this time , you won't lead me, and you won't lead me no mo.

I know my baby, I know my baby,
And she's bound ta jump, and she's bound ta jump an' shout.
Now when she get holt o this letter, I'll done rolled them few, I'll done roled them few days out.

You sweet time someone, you sweet time someone,
You aught'a know what you want, you aught'a know what you want ta do.
Now the day that you quit me, an' I won't be mad, I won't be mad with you.

Jes the day before Christmas, Jes the day before Christmas,
Let me bring your present, let me bring your present tonight.
Now I will be your Santa Clause, even if my whiskers, even if my whiskers is white.
