[Verse 1]
Well, wake up, mama
Turn your lamp down low
Yeah, wake up mama, mama
Turn your lamp down low, low
Yes, you got no nerve now, mama
Not to drive me from your door

[Verse 2]
'Cause my Mama died and left me with this
My Papa died and left me wild, oh
Yeah, my Mama died and left me with this
Papa died and left me wild, wild
Oh, yes
You know I ain’t good looking but I'm some sweet
Woman's angel-child, child
Well, alright now!

[Verse 3]
Goin’ up the country, mama, would you like to go?
Goin’ up the country, mama, would you like to go?
I'm gonna take my baby, now, I might take 2 or 3 more

[Verse 4]
'Cause I got 'em
You got 'em
Mama's got 'em, Papa's got 'em
Sister's got 'em, brother's got 'em
Now, I woke up this morning, did not know what to do
I looked over in the corner
Grandma and Grandpa's got 'em too
Well alright, alright!

[Refrain]
I got the Statesboro blues
I got the Statesboro blues
I got the Statesboro blues
I got the Statesboro blues
Lord, I got them Statesboro blues, yeah
