Pistol Slapper Blues-Blind Boy Fuller
G position, standard tuning with Sonny Terry, harmonica

I can tell my dog anywhere I hear him bark
I can tell my rider if I feel her in the dark

You's a cold-blooded murderer, when you want me out your way
Says, that's all right mama, you gonna need my help some day

And you say you're gwonna put me, mama, down in my lonesome grave
Say you must remember, I once have been your slave

SOLO

And I feel like snappin' my pistol in your face
Let some brownskin woman be here to take your place

Yeah-hey, hey-yeah, mm-mm, mm-mm
Let some brownskin woman be here to take your place

Now you know you didn't want me when you lie down ’cross my bed
Drinking your moonshine whisky, mama, talking all out your head

Now give me the money, baby, I'll catch that train and go
You don't have to kill me ’cause you don't want me no more
Hey, hey, ’cause you don't want me no more
Now you give me the money, baby, and I'll catch that train and go

Now you see my rider, tell her I said bring it home
I ain't had no lovin. since my gal been gone

It's two kind of people in the world that I can't stand
That's a lying woman and a monkey man

Mm-mm, mm-mm
Mm-mm, mm-mm
