Poor Black Mattie

Album: They Lie In Wait
(Burnside)

Poor Black Mattie ain’t got changin’ clothes
Fool got drunk, close that door
Poor Black Mattie, ain’t got changin’ clothes, I know
Fool got drunk, threw her clothes outdoors

I’m goin’ to Memphis, see that world’s fair
Reason I’m goin’, baby there
Yeah, I’m goin’ to Memphis, I got to see that world’s fair
Reason I’m goin’, you know my baby’s there

Need no heater, fireplace by my bed
Woman I got, cherry red
I need no heat, got a fireplace by my bed
What I got, keep me cherry red

See that moonlight shinin’ through them trees
Look at that woman above her knee
See that moonlight shinin’ through them trees
Look at that woman, just above her knee
