Subject: RE: Going to German. What does it mean?
Love this song
3rd verse in the Cannon's Jug Stompers recording-
"I got no woman" or "I got another woman" ?
Just an awkward amount of syllables but it makes more sense. I love how they add extra bars to the last two verses in the first line but maybe that tripped up the singer by the time he got to "I got another woman" and who knows if it was intentional for that matter.
Classic break-up song but in this case our protagonist seems to be more down in the dumps instead of sitting on top of the world.
