Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low;
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door.
I woke up this morning, I had them Statesboro Blues,
Well, I looked over in the corner, and Grandpa seemed to have them too.
Well my momma died and left me,
I ain't good looking baby,

But if you can't make it baby, your sister Lucille said she want to go.

Well, I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen.
I treat her like a doggone queen.
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door.
