Hey, hey, mama, that risin' sun done gone.
I say, hey, hey, mama, that risin' sun done gone.
I just can't see what in the world is you waitin' on.

I've got another mama, she ain't long and o'er tall.
I say I got another mama, she ain't long and o'er tall.
But to tell you the truth man, she is soft as a butter ball.

She got Elgin movement from her head down to her toe.[1]
She got Elgin movement from her head down to her toe.
And she can break in on a dollar, man most anywhere she go.

She was my best mama, but she wouldn't treat me right.
I said she was my best mama, but she wouldn't treat me right.
She wouldn't do nothin' but barrelhouse all night long.

I wanna get me a mama, I mean with lotsa bucks.
I'm going to be gone, mama, so I can change my luck.

(Be gone, mama, be gone.)
