Song Lyrics

Honey you've been gone all day, that you may make whoopee all night
Baby you've been gone all day, that you may make whoopee all night
I'm gonna take my razor and cut your late hours, you wouldn't think I'd be servin' you right

Undertaker been here and gone, I gave him your height and seize
I said, "Undertaker been here and gone, I gave him your height and seize"
You be makin' whoopee with the devil in hell tomorrow night

You made me love you, now you got me for your slave
Baby, you done made me love you, now I got me for your slave
From now you'll be makin' whoopee, deep in your lonesome grave

Baby, next time you go out, carry your black suit along
Mama, next time you go out, carry your black suit along
Coffin's gonna be your prison, hell's gonna be your brand new home

I say the devil got 90,000 women, he just need one more
He's on the mountain callin' for you, baby, broke down, show 'em I'm gone

Cool, cool weather we're having, summer's almost out
Then I got to go to that valley, ain't a house for 25 miles around

My poor feet are so tired, Lord help me some way
Then I got 300 miles to go, slammin' through this mud and gray
