When I first met Papa Jackson, worked in the Station Hall
When I first met Papa Jackson, worked in the Station Hall
It was all through the South End, they had a wonderful Christmas Ball

Now he's a good man, treats everybody right
Now he's a good man, treats everybody right
Sayin', if you want to see 'im, you've got to go to his house at night

I'm going to see him, going to take your advice
I'm going to see him, going to take your advice
Says, I've been mistreated and I sure do want my rights

SOLO

Then I come runnin', both hands in the air
Then I come a-runnin', both hands in the air
Lord, I asked, Papa Charlie's place is in Chicago somewhere

SOLO

Now, he's wonderful, just as wonderful as he can be
Now, he's wonderful, just as wonderful as he can be
Says, the reason I know, the Paramount people was telling me

Now, I've got the blues, and I've got 'em hard
Now, I've got the blues, and I've got 'em hard
But I'm gonna make myself satisfied, living in the 20th Ward
