YAZOO BOTTOM MESSAROUND ?‚ SPENCER BOHREN, 1996 [adapted from traditional sources]



Goin' to Yazoo Bottom, goin' to Margarite's

You can mail a letter there, but I go for the eats



- chorus -

Oh, Mama! Papa's got them Yazoo Bottom Blues

Yes, Mama! Papa's got them Yazoo Bottom Blues



She can bring you whiskey, or she can bring you tea

Anything she serves out there, it's alright with me



- chorus -



Might be pickin' cotton, could be pullin weeds

When the sun gets hot you got to go to Margarite's



- chorus -



Goin' down by the river, where the cotton grows

Margarite's up early she's been cookin' up a show
