INTRO

I meant, I'm the rootin' ground hog, and I root both nights and days
Yes, I'm the rootin' ground hog, baby, well, I root both nights and days
I want some good-lookin' mama to come here now, plea-ease, drive these blues away

I went home last night, babe, just about the break of day
I be grabbed the pillow, my baby used to lay
I'm the rootin' ground hog, you're gon' nee-eed me some sweet day
Well, look for poor Joe down low, ooo-hoo, well, I'll be teased so far away

I'm a rooting ground hog, and I roots everywhere I go (Spoken: Play it on there, boy, you're bad!)
I'm a rooting ground hog, babe, roots everywhere I go
I'm tryin' to keep my woman takin' my lovin', she ain't allowed to give any to Mr. So-and-So

Let me tell you now, woman, just before I go
Give me back my money, I catch the train and go
I'm a rooting ground hog, and I root everywhere I go
Well, my baby had the nerve to tell me, that she didn't want me no more

I'm a-leavin' Chicago, I ain't gonna leave my babe no more (Spoken: Play it on out, boy.)
I'm a-leavin' Chicago, ooooo, I ain't gonna leave my babe no more
I'm that rich rooting ground hog, I got a home anywhere I go

I woke up this mornin', I looked down the line
Couldn't hear nothin' but my bedsprings cryin'
I"m the rooting ground hog, root both nights and days
I want some good-lookin' mama to come here, plea-ease, drive these blues away
