Lyrics
Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
Say you got no amount of nerve honey, to drive Uncle Johm from your door

You know I woke up this mornin'
I had them statesboro blues
Woke up this mornin'
Had them statesboro blues
I looked over 'round the corner babe
Aww and grandma had them too oh yeah

Take it Brian (guitar solo)

Woooo

My mama died and left me,
my father died and left me,
Now things are lookin' better than ever
So are you

I'm goin' to the country
Honey you oughta go-oh-oh yeah
If you feel like changin' your mind mama,
your sister Lucy she wanna go
that's ok, I still got my guitar

(guitar solo)

I love that woman, better than any girl I've ever seen
Love that woman, better than any girl I've ever seen
She treats me like I was a king and she's my lovin' queen

Oh, wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
Yeah-ah-ah-ah mama, turn your lamp down low
Say you got no amount of nerve baby, to drive Uncle Johm from your door.

Yeah.
