From: 12003biloute

Hi

Who can fill the missing lines shown by (???????) in this Huddie song released in 1948

Thank you

Claude

IT'S TIGHT LIKE THAT recorded New York City October 15, 1948

Guitar intro

Oh it's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Guitar break

Oh it's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

You take Sal and I'll take Jane
Both good lookin', but they ain't the same
Oh tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

If you want to see a preacher laugh
Change a dollar and give him half
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Some folks said that a preacher won't steal
I caught two in my corn-field
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

????????????
Gone to cornfield just like rats
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh tight like that

Some folks said that a chicken won't steal
I caught two on my chicken-roost field
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

????????
????????
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Preacher and rooster had a terrible fight,
Preacher knocked the Rooster clean out of sight
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Chicken told the rooster, "That will be all right.
Meet you at the hen house 'morrow night
It's tight like that ooooh, be tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Yeah!
Guitar break

Oh it's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

?????????????
??????????????
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

??????????????
??????????????
It's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Guitar break

Oh it's tight like that ooooh, tight like that ooooh
In some deed oh it's tight like that

Here are my guesses:


One had a ??? one had a sack


???? and didn't have to stoop
trying to catch ?? to make ??? soup

?? frog jumped in the bottom of the well
oh my god he's ??(jumped into?) hell

funniest thing I ever seen
tomcat sitting on a sewing machine

Hi Melissa

What do you think about

One had a ??? one had a sack


???? and didn't have to stoop
trying to catch a rooster to make a rooster soup

Hope it'll help claude

"in some deed" should surely be "yes indeed"?

I couldn't think of any words that sounded like they made sense to me in the places I left ???

If I was singing it, I'd just fill in the blanks..probably 'basket' to go with the sack and 'stepped in the chickenhouse' for the rooster

Hi

Please find close to certain lines of this song where you can catch them.
One thing is sure Huddie is very hard to understand
Another thing I'm not sure that "In some deed or Yes indeed" matches with the song
Maybe one of you can answer the question
Good reading folks

Steve Lohmeyer,

I don't think my recordings are any clearer, and I know my ears aren't any more sensitive, but I clearly hear, "Diddle dum dee, It's tight like that."
