Guest - I can't see a song with that title by RGD.

Is it the one that Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee sing?



I was standing on the corner one day of Sixth and Main,
Police draw by and ask me my right name.

 What did you tell him boy?

I told him that my name written in the bosom of my shirt.
I'm a woman's lover and I sure God don't have to work.

When I'm in your town please be on your Ps and Qs.
I've your woman with me when she should be with you.

  All right now.. <break>
  One more time .. <break>

I'm a woman's, woman's lover and I don't deny my name.
Lord the woman I'm loving boys I think it's a crying shame

I don't have to ride on the bus, neither take no subway train,
Lord so many women they gonna buy me an aeroplane.

  I got it now.. <break>

I come home this morning twixt nine-thirty, ten,
Find my best friend boys laying right up there in my den.

  Yes I did

Woa, oh. Hey, hey. Hmm. Lordy lord.
Hey, hey. Lord, lord, lordy, lord.
