BOTTLE UP AND GO Huddie Ledbetter Bottle It Up And Go 3:46 Trk 15 Huddie Ledbetter - vocal & guitar Brownie McGhee - bkgrd chorus Recorded: Aug 23, 1940 4472B3LC Unissued Album: Vol 5 Remaining Library of Congress Vol 2 Spoken intro: Now, I'm gon' bottle up and go High powered womens That means a woman when she's - That means a woman when she's high-powered She can drive her car, she can do most anything Cause you know, women now make the news. They make the news, an if you make 'em mad They blow out your fuse. And what I mean, they can drive a car And they can drive the oxen And do's ev'rything sort-a, like-a mans. So now, I'm gon' bottle up an go Bout women cause a grief Women's whys I sing about it. Song begins: I got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go Any high powered women Sho' got to bottle up and go She may be old, ninety year She ain't to old for to shift dem gears She got to bottle up an - 'otta do what? She got to bottle up and go (Got to bottle up and go) These high-powered women Sho' got to bottle up and go Told my baby, week a-fo' last The gait she came it's alittle too fast She got to bottle up an - got do what? Say it, again (Got to bottle up and go) These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go ('Well, alright') They got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These-a high powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Told my baby late last night None a my business, she's doin' me right She got to bottle up and - got do what? She got to bottle up and go (She got to bottle up and go) These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go ('Sing another one') Nickel is a nickel Dime is a dime Need no girl If she won't mind She gotta bottle up - gotta do what? She got to bottle up and go (She got to bottle up and go) These high-powered women Sho gotta bottle up and go Got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Nigger and a white man Playin', seven up Nigger beat the white man Scared to pick it up He had to bottle up - had do what? He had to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Jumped in a river Couldn't get across Jumped on a alligator Thought it was a hoss He had to bottle up - (had do what?) He had to bottle up and go He had to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Mama killed a chicken Thought it was a duck Put him on the table With his legs sticking up He had to bottle up - (had do what?) He had to bottle up and go (He had to bottle up and go) These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go Got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go 'I'll go ahead and lay it on her man' I'll beat 'em, bop 'em Pop 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em Beat-beat-beat-bop Pop-up, pop 'em, pop 'em Beat 'em, beat 'em, pop 'em Beat 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em Pop-up, pop-up Pop 'em, pop 'em You got to bottle up and go I got to bottle up and go These high-powered women Sho got to bottle up and go. ~ note - very similar to Tommy McClennan's recording at Bluebird (Chicago Nov. 22, 1939) (Contributed by AwC - April 2008)
