Subject: Tailor Made Gal
From: AndyJim

Anybody know the complete lyrics?

Wbat I remember:

Don't you wish your babe was
Tailor made like mine?
Don't you wish you babe was
Tailor made like mine?
She's a tailor made gal and
She's built up from the ground

If you see my baby
Lordy don't get smart
If you see my woman
Lordy don't get smart
Or else I'll cut out your liver
And lord I'll eat your heart

All the best,
Andrew

Nothing with "tailor made". Found a few with "from the ground up". Who is the artist?

Hi, Andrew - all I found was that an artist named John Hardee (click) recorded "Taylor-Made Gal" (note spelling) in the late 1940's.

It's a blues, if that helps. Been thirty-some years since I heard it on a collection. No idea who sang it; solo with guitar. Oh well, too obscure I reckon.

All the best, Andrew

I would bet on Big Joe Williams. According to various sources on the Internet, he recorded songs called "Tailor Made Babe" "Tailor Made Baby" "Tailor Made Woman," and/or "Tailor Made Blues."

No luck finding lyrics, though.

Try this link

If that link doesn't work, go to CDNOW and search for the song title "Tailor Made." Hopefully you will be able to bring up some albums with sound samples that you can listen to. If you identify the exact song/album/artist you're looking for, come back and post the information here, along with any new lyrics you learn. It might jog somebody's memory, or make someone realize they own the album, and then maybe they'll transcribe it for you. I've seen it happen.

Subject: Lyr Add: TAILOR-MADE WOMAN (Bryant/Kemp)
From: Jim Dixon

Not the song that was wanted, probably, but I might as well post it here. I found the song on Spotify.

TAILOR-MADE WOMAN
Words and music by Jimmy Bryant and Bill Kemp
As sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford, with Joe 'Fingers' Carr on piano, 1951.

There's an old sayin' 'bout roll your own.
There's tailor-made suits; that's quite well known.
There's a tailor-made woman that's hard to beat.
Takes a tailor-made man to knock her off her feet.

When I want lovin', she gives it to me.
We go together like honey and the bee.
She's a tailor-made woman; I'm a tailor-made man.
That's the kind o' lovin' I understand.

She's sweet, neat, all complete.
She's the kind o' girl I love.
She's small, tall; that ain't all.
True as the stars above.

She's a real sweet gal with a tailor-made smile.
For a tailor-made kiss, I'd walk a mile.
Listen here, boy, if you can meet,
Take a tailor-made woman; they're hard to beat.

Rendition on Youtube of the OP's requested song--I think.

From: Jim Dixon

I listened to this on Spotify & made this transcription:

TAILOR MADE BABY
As sung by Big Joe Williams on "Blues Classics" (L & R Music/Records, 1996)

Whoa, babe!
Whoa, babe!
Tailor made.
Tailor made.
Don't you wish your little gal was tailor make like mine?

I'm goin' set in the shade, baby.
Have your dresses made.
I'm goin' set in the shade, woman, have your dresses made.
Well, I love my baby 'cause—tailor made.

Don't you wish your gal was tailor made like mine?
Don't you wish your gal—tailor made like mine?
Tailor made, she's built right from the ground.

Goin' down by the river, swing out on a limb.
Goin' down to the river, swing out on a limb.
I'm gonna ask my baby, must I sink or swim?

Tailor made.
Tailor made, child.
Yeah, you wish your woman was tailor made like mine.
Ha-ha-ha!
