OLD STAMPING GROUND, THE (Wallace Bishop / Charles LaFreniere / Willie "The Lion" Smith) Willie "The Lion" Smith & His Cubs - 1937 Artie Shaw & His Orch. (vocal: Tony Pastor) - 1938 For I'm goin' and I'm tellin' ev'ryone where I'm goin' For I'm goin' back to the old stampin' ground For I'm weary, my happiness is nowheres near me For I'm sick and tired of getting the runaround Things have been not so good Since I left the old neighbourhood Got no one with love to spare That's why I'm getting out of here For I'm goin' and I'm goin' while the wind keep blowin' It will blow me back to the old stamping ground, oohhh yeah (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2009)
