Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Don't You Feel My Leg
I’ve been asked to perform DON’T YOU FEEL MY LEG for the DANNY BARKER BANJO and GUITAR FESTIVAL in New Orleans tomorrow. I was given a CD reissue of the original recording by Blu Lu Barker and Danny Barker. Here are the ORIGINAL lyrics:

Don’t you feel my leg
Don’t you feel my leg
‘Cos if you feel my leg
You’ll wanna feel my thigh
And if you feel my thigh
You’ll wanna go up high
So don’t you feel my leg

Don’t you buy no rye
Don’t you buy no rye
‘Cos if you buy some rye
You gonna make me high
And if you make me high
You gonna tell a lie
So don’t you make me high

You said you’d take me out and treat me fine
But I know there’s something you got on your mind
If you keep drinking you’re gonna get fresh
And you’ll wind up asking for this fine brown flesh

Don’t you feel my leg
Don’t you feel my leg
‘Cos if you feel my leg
You’ll wanna feel my thigh
And if you feel my thigh
You’ll wanna go up high
So don’t you feel my leg

Hope this clears up any speculation about the song and its lyrics.
Blessings Everyone! Dee Dee Bridgewater
