I'M A RATTLESNAKIN' DADDY Blind Boy Fuller 1935 Blind Boy Fuller (vocal and guitar) recorded July 23rd 1935 New York Yes, he rattled this mornin' 'bout half past four, Somebody knockin' on my back door, Sayin' there's my rattlesnakin' daddy, There's my rattlesnakin' daddy, That's my rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! Yes, he rattled this mornin' 'bout half past three, Half past four he wanted to rattle some more, 'Cause there's my rattlesnakin' daddy, That's my rattlesnakin' daddy, That's my rattlesnskin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! I got a range in my kitchen, bakes bread nice and brown, Get my rattlesnakin' daddy, turn my damper upside down, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! Rattle now boy! I can rattle to the left, rattle to the right, My woman said, "I believe my rattlesnakin' daddy can rattle all night!", 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! I rattle every mornin' till late at night, Reason why my rattlesnake mama don't allow me out of her sight, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! Now the old folks rattlin', the young one too, Ain't nobody rattle just like the way I do, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all the time! Yes, I rattled this mornin' 'bout half past ten, Half past nine, I want to rattle again, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, 'Cause I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I wants to rattle all the time!
