BRING IT ON DOWN TO MY HOUSE HONEY,THERE AIN'T NOBODY HOME BUT ME.

This is all I remember of this old song. It used to be done by the western swing bands like Bob Wills.

Lyrics would really be appreciated. Jeep

Subject: Lyr Add: FETCH IT ON DOWN TO MY HOUSE
From: Stewie
Date: 27 May 01 - 10:48 PM

Here's a western swing version from Hartman's Heartbreakers, with vocals from the oh-so-innocent 'Betty Lou' who evidently was a moonlighting wellknown popular singer. A gloriously salacious romp.

FETCH IT ON DOWN TO MY HOUSE

Fetch it on down to my house, daddy,
Ain't nobody home but me
Bring it on down to my house, daddy,
I need the company
Now, ain't good lookin', that's understood
But the boys all like me 'cos I do it good
Now, fetch it on down to my house, daddy
There ain't nobody home but me

Instumental break

Fetch it on down to my house, daddy,
Ain't nobody home but me
Bring it on down to my house, daddy,
I'll be home and free
You got the message, I got the string
Let put 'em together, boy, start shakin' our thing
Fetch it on down to my house, daddy,
Ain't nobody home but me

Instrumental break

Fetch it on down to my house, daddy,
I want your company
Bring it on down to my house, daddy
Ain't nobody home but me
Mama's in heaven, papa's in jail
Make my livin' by the wiggle of my tail
Fetch it on down to my house, daddy,
Ain't nobody home but me

{Spoken: Shake that thing, honey}
Instrumental

As recorded by Hartman's Heartbreakers. Reissued on 'Woodchips and Heartbreakers: The Blue Roots of Western Swing' ZirconVert CD Vert 701.

Roy Book Binder has an adapted version, 'Over To My House', on his 'Hillbilly Blues Cats' CD Rounder 3121. I also have a recording by Dewent Brown (Milton's brother) when he headed the Brownie's after Milton's death, but no time to transcribe it at the moment.

Here is the way Bette Midler sings it on "Live at Last."
Copied from http://www.bettelyrics.com/lyrics/hod.htm

HURRY ON DOWN
(Nellie Lutcher, 1947)

Hurry on down to my house, honey. Ain't nobody home but me.
Hurry on down to my house, baby. Oh, I'm blue as I can be.
I love you. You love me.
A-hurry through the alley so the neighbors don't see.
Hurry on down to my house, honey. Ain't nobody home but me. Oooh.

Hurry on down to my house, baby. Ain't nobody home but me.
Hurry on down to my house, baby. I'm blue as I can be.
Oh, blue when the clock a-went tick-tock-tick.
Ooh, c'mon, honey, ah-quick, quick, quick.
Awww, hurry on down to my house, baby. Ain't nobody home but me.

Say, hurry, hurry, a-nobody's home.
Hurry on down, baby, I'm blue as I can be.
Oh, please come down just as soon as you can.
If you don't come down, I got to call Sam!
You know the man is crazy about me.
Ain't nobody home but me . . . ow!

Well, what's goin' on with the three of yous?
C'mon, c'mon, make it snappy.
C'mon, c'mon, work out, work out!
Go, babe, get down, get down! Oh, lord! Nobody's home!"

Say, hurry on down to my house, baby. Ain't nobody home.
A-haul it down, drag it down, any way to get it down.
I'm blue as I can be.
Ashes-to-ashes. Dust-to-dust.
C'mon, honey, you must, you must!
Hurry on down to my house, baby. Ain't nobody home but me.

Hurry, hurry. A-nobody's home.
Haul it down and drag it down. You know I can't stand to be alone.
Operator, get me Hillside 409.
A-don't stop ringin' 'til you get that baby's line!
He's gonna haul it down!
Ain't nobody home but, you believe it, there's nobody home but me! Whoa!

BRING IT ON DOWN TO MY HOUSE

I.As recorded by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, 1947. (Okeh 03492)

1. Bring it on down to my house, honey.
There ain't nobody home but me.
Bring it on down to my house, honey.
I need your company.
Well, the tomcat's sitting on the railroad track.
Hollered at the mama cat. She answered back:

"Bring it on down to my house honey.
There ain't nobody home but me."

[Subsequent verses are the same except for lines 5-6:]

2. My gal Sal makes good pie.
Eat so much I could nearly die.

3. Say, old man, can you play a fiddle?
Yes, by cracky, I can play a little.

4. [Scat]

II. As recorded by Milton Brown And His Brownies, 1936. (Decca 46002 A)

1. I'm a honey-drippin' daddy, got a red-hot mama.
She's a shimmy-shakin' mama but she can't shake me.

2. Now all you women give me a try.
I'm like a Chesterfield; I satisfy.

3. Now I held up my hand; the teacher said no.
The joke's on the teacher 'cause I didn't have to go.

4. Now Jack and Jill went over the hill.
I don't know what they're doin' but they're over there still.

ADDITIONAL VERSES - UNKNOWN SOURCE:

The big dog jumped and he ran around the ring.
The little dog jumped and he couldn't do a thing.

You can shake it. You can break it. You can hang it on the wall.
Throw it out the window and get it 'fore it falls.

Well, that's my gal. She's the one who did it.
She began to like it and she just couldn't quit it.
