DON'T GIVE MY LARD AWAY James "Stump" Johnson 1933 James "Stump" Johnson (vocal & piano) Joe C Stone (guitar) recorded August 2nd 1933 Chicago You may know all my clothes is pawned, You may know that all my clothes is pawned, For the shape on me babe, I can't do you no harm! I was listenin' to this tune of a saxophone 'cross the way, I was listenin' to this tune of a saxophone 'cross the way, Where Gutbucket Jilly show her draws till day! Joint we are in babe, smell like a Kentucky mine, This joint that we're in babe, smell like a Kentucky mine, We haven't had off our shoes but we're havin' a shakin' good time! Pull up your dress babe, let your short man see, Pull up your dress babe, let your short man see, Your bloomers is hangin' babe, sure is worryin' me! Please my babe, don't give my lard away, Please my babe, don't give my lard away, I'm a sick man now but I swear I'll be well someday! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2013)
