SHE'S A TRUCKIN' LITTLE BABY
As sung by Blind Boy Fuller
From the album "Blind Boy Fuller Vol. 4 1937-1938" (Document DOCD-5094)
1. I got a gal; she live 'cross that hill.
Just gonna quit me but I love her still.
CHORUS: She's a truckin' little baby.
She's a truckin' little baby.
She's a truckin' little baby; I'm gwine to tell it ev'rywhere I go.
2. That 'ere girl she's named Irene.
She got good jelly but she's stingy with me.
3. Now wake up, boys; don't be no fool.
Here's a little gal, yes, yes, comes too(?).
4. She's long and slim; she's made up round.
She can look up long as I can look down.
5. Get out, boys; let me shut the do'.
I got to truck some 'fore I go.
6. Tell you boys 'cause you my pal,
Mighty bad sign to advertise your gal.
