MY PENCIL WON'T WRITE NO MORE Armenter Chatman (aka Bo Carter) 1931 Bo Carter (vocal & guitar) recorded June 4th 1931 Now listen here folks, there's one thing sure, My old pencil won't write no more, Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! I laid down in my bed just to write a line, I could feel my old pencil droopin', fallin' all the time Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! I gets outta my bed, down on the floor, I was worryin' 'bout my old pencil won't write no more, Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! I met a hot mama, I wanted to love her so bad, I lost all the lead in my pencil I had! Now the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! I hugged and I kissed her all last night; It was nothin' doin', my old pencil wouldn't write Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! You sure can tell when a man's pencil is wrong, His mama's always shiftin' from home Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more! Now listen here man, you ought to know, You can't write for that woman, you have to let her go Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone, Oh the lead's all gone, this pencil won't write no more, More ma-ma-ma-more!
