SOLO

Say you talkin' 'bout your red ripe tomato, I'm crazy 'bout my T-bone steak,
Say you talkin' 'bout your red ripe tomato, I'm crazy 'bout my T-bone steak,
Said I'm gon' find me a faro, to share my Cadillac 8.

I got the railroad blues, the boxcars on my mind,
I got the railroad blues, the boxcars on my mind,
And that girl I lovin', she sure done left this town.

Say if I had wings, like a bullfrog on a pond,
Say if I had wings, like a bullfrog on a pond,
I would rise right chere, light in sweet mama's arms.

You know once ain't forever, you know, babe, two, Lord, ain't but twice,
You know once ain't forever, you know, babe, two, Lord, ain't but twice,
But you women all get a good man, you don't know how to treat him right.

SOLO (partial, missing V chord phrase)

Say you mistreat me, mama, and that's the way you do,
Say you mistreat me now, mama, you know and that's the way you do,
But you gon' want me some of these mornin's, and poor James won't have you.
