DON'T TAKE THAT BLACK BOTTOM AWAY (Sam Coslow / Andy Britt / Harry Link) Annette Hanshaw & The Red Heads - 1926 Hoosier Radio Boys - 1926 Plantation Players (vocal: Tom Stacks) - 1926 Golden Gate Orch. (vocal: Ed Kirkeby) - 1926 Broadway Bell Hops (Instr.) - 1926 The Seven Aces (Instr.) -1926 As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW, October 1926, New York: No one ever gave me a tumble At a party or ball Till I learned a certain step That gave me quite a rep I became the life of the party One who goes every day That hot rhythm kept me with 'em Now they wanna take it away, I'm cryin' You can take my coat and hat Take away my dog and my cat But don't take away that Black Bottom Black Bottom You can take the sun away Leave me with those clouds of grey But don't take that Black Bottom away Hey-Hey! Every time I do that dance I lose my self control It has taken full possession Of my very soul So, just take everything you can You can even take my man But don't take that Black Bottom away Take all poison alcohol I won't miss that stuff at all But don't take away that Black Bottom Black Bottom Take away those sexy plays Where they scream the woman pays But don't take that Black Bottom away Hey-Hey! When they took that Shimmy dance I really didn't mind When the Charleston ??? ??? I never wept ???? ??? But at the close of every day On my knees you'll hear me prayin' Don't take that Black Bottom away Just take everything you can You can even take my man But don't take that Black Bottom Don't take the sunshine out of my life (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2018)
