RICHLAND WOMEN BLUES
Mississippi John Hurt
Give me red lipstick and a bright poppy rouge
A shinglebob haircut and a shot of good booze
Hurry down sweet Daddy, come blowin' your horn
If you come too late your mama will be gone
Come along young man, everything's settin right
My husband gone away 'til late Saturday night
Now I'm rarin' to go, got red shoes on my feet
My mind is set right for tin lizzy seat
Stop at the fashion shop, get the one that looks best
Your own sweet mama wants a brand new dress
Red rooster says, "Cockadoodle do doo"
The Richland women say, "Any dude will do."
Every Sunday morning, church watchin' me go
My wings sprouted out, the preacher told me so.
With rosy red garters and pink hose on my feet
Turkey-red bloomer with a rumble seat
Dress skirt high, then they cut low,
Don't think I'm a sport, keep on watchin' me go.
