Eagles On A Half by Geeshie Wiley

Eagles On A Half - Geeshie Wiley,
A position, standard tuning.

It's a low, it's a low low, lowdown dirty shame
It's a low, it's a low low, lowdown dirty shame
I've got a brownskin man but I'm scared to call his name

I say squat low, papa, let your mama see
I say squat low, papa, let your mama see
I want to see that old business, keeps on worrying me

Instrumental chorus

I twisted and I tumbled, I rolled the whole night long
I twisted and I tumbled, I rolled the whole night long
I didn't have no daddy to hold me in his arms

Instrumental chorus

I say get back, rider, don't care how you lay
I say get back, rider, don't care how you lay
I want to tell you I can't stay here till day

I say eagles on a half, lord, say in God we trust
I cry eagles on a half, babe, ah in God we trust
I love you, daddy, but your dollar's first
