|Bottle Up And Go -
Borrow Love And Go*
Lead Belly - also by Snooks Eaglin
I got to bottle up and go (2)
These high powered women sure got to bottle up and go
She may be old ninety years
She aint too old for to shift her gears
I tol my baby late las night
Aint none a-my business, she aint doin me right
Tol my baby, week before last
The gait shes keepin, just a little too fast
Nickle is a nickel, dime is a dime
Need a new girl, she wont mind
Mama killed a chicken, thought it was a duck
Put him on the table with his legs stickin up
Well, I jumped in the river and I couldnt get across
Jumped on an alligator thought it was a horse
I jumped in the river and I started to drown
I thought about my gal, and I turned aroun'
* According to "The Leadbelly Songbook" this song is titled "Borrow Love And Go".
However, on CDs it is titled "Bottle Up And Go" - and that's what he actually sings.
By the way, it is said Lead Belly himself prefered the spelling of his nickname in two words:
Lead Belly. His real name was Huddie Ledbetter. He got the nickname by prisoners in due
of his strong body. They said he had belly like lead.
