22. MEMPHIS JUG

Rain, jump down, jump down, smelling like chance of rain. (2x)
Lord, every once in a while I think I hear my baby call my name.
(What does she say, boy?)

I, I ain't gonna tell you no more. (Let me tell you, Lord.)
I ain't gonna tell you no more. (Ain't, now.)
Stay away from my window, mama told me, to get in my back door.

I ain't been your good man, mama, since you have been my Jane. (?) (2x)
Now you want me to do, since I ain't gonna change.

I stuck with you, mama, when you did not have no man at all. (2x)
Now, baby, you must want me for to be your low-down dog.

Lord, I can sit right here, partner, look on Culligan Avenue. (2x)
Lord, I can see ever'thing that a Culligan (?) easy roller do.

[As recorded by the Memphis Jug Band, 1927, Will Shade, Will Weldon, and Charlie Polk, vocalists.]
