Hi

I'm missing the last sentence of this song. I can't understand what Jimmie singing... Can someone figure it out? Thanks in advance.


What makes a woman hang her weary head and cry? (Lord, Lord, Lord.)
What makes a woman, hang her weary head and cry,
When she starts to tell her only lovin' man goodbye?

A woman is a woman, all over the USA. (Hey, hey, hey.)
A woman is a woman, all over the USA.
From Georgia up to Maine, they get you in the same old way. (Yes, they do.)

But give me a woman from down in old Alabam'.
Give me a woman from down in old Alabam'.
She's got ways like an angel, and that's true as old Abraham.

You can go to a woman when you're down and in your grief. (Lord, Lord, Lord.)
You can go to a woman when you're down and in your grief,
Lay your head on her shoulder and suffer sweet release.

When a woman gets blue, Lord, I mean she's a desperate soul. (Yes, she's is.)
When a woman gets blue, I mean, she's a desperate soul.
If she can reach her razor, sweet papa, hunt your hole.

It sounds to me like 'If she's in reach of a razor, sweet papa, hunt your hose.

On listening again, you are correct - 'if she can reach her razor'. It could be 'hose' or 'hole' or even 'hoe' - hard to decipher. He clearly sings 'hunt', but 'hide' would make more sense.

I think "hunt your hole" is correct; I take it to mean: find a hole to hide in--to escape the woman who is coming after you with a razor.
