Chocolate To The Bone-Barbecue Bob (Robert Hicks)
Spanish tuning, with a slide

So glad I'm brownskin, so glad I'm brownskin, chocolate to the bone
So glad I'm brownskin, chocolate to the bone
And I've got what it takes to make a monkey man leave his home

Black man is evil, yellow's so low-down
Black man is evil, yellow man's so low-down
I walk into these houses just to see these black men frown

I'm just like Miss Lillian, like Miss Lillian, I mean Miss Glinn, you see
I'm just like Miss Lillian, I mean Miss Glinn, you see
She said, "A brownskin man is just all right with me."

So glad I'm brownskin, chocolate to the bone
So glad I'm brownskin, chocolate to the bone
I've got what it takes to make a monkey man leave his home

Yellow man won't quit, black man just won't 'have
Yellow man won't quit and a black man just won't 'have
But a pigmeat mama crazy about brownskin baby ways

I got a yellow mama, got a yellow mama, she always got a pleasant smile
I got a yellow mama, always got a pleasant smile
But that brownskin gal with those coal black dreamy eyes

So glad I'm brownskin, so glad I'm brownskin, I'm chocolate to the bone
So glad I'm brownskin, chocolate to the bone
And I've got what it takes to make a monkey man leave his home

SOLO (On first line of verse)
Mmmmmmmm, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd
And I've got what it takes to make a monkey man leave his home
