Born Blind

You been talkin' about your woman, I sure wish that you cold see mine
You been talkin' about your woman, I sure wish that you cold see mine
Every time the little girl start to lovin', she bring eyesight to the blind
Her daddy must have been a millionaire, cause I can tell by the way she walk
Her daddy must have been a millionaire, cause I can tell by the way she walk
Every time she start to lovin', the deaf and dumb begin to talk
All right... (solo)
I remember one Friday morning the little girl was makin' up her bed,
Man in the next room was dyin', stopped down and held up his head
He said Man, ain't she pretty
And the whole state know she's fine
Every time she start to lovin', she bring eyesight to the blind
Let's go now... (solo)

Eyesight To The Blind

You talk about your woman, i wish you could see mine.
You talk about your woman, i wish you could see mine.
Every time she sarts her lovin', she brings eyesight to the blind.
You know her daddy gave her magic, i can tell by the way she walks.
Her daddy gave her magic, i can tell by the way she walks.
Every time she starts to shakin', the dumb begin to talk.
She's got the power to heal you, never fear.
She's got the power to heal you, never fear.
Just a word from her lips, and the deaf begin to hear.

Fattening Frogs For Snakes

It took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
Took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
(it sho' did man)
But I bet you my bottom dollar, I'm not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes
I found out my downfall, back in nineteen and thirty
(I started checkin')
I found out my downfall, from nineteen and thirty
I'm tellin' all of my friends, I'm not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes
All right now... (solo)
Yeh it is nineteen and fifty-seven, I've got to correct all of my mistakes
Whoa man, nineteen and fifty-seven, I've got to correct all of my mistakes
I'm tellin' my friends includin' my wife and everybody else,
  not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes

Help Me

Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide

Hold up your head, and don't let your conscience get you down
Hold up your head darlin', don't let your conscience get you down
If you never lie to me, I'll always be around
You are the same little woman, was so nice and kind to me in every way

But if you never lie to me, I'll be by your side both night and day
You have a strong constitution, and I'm not gonna let you down

Lonesome Cabin

In my one room little cabin, just me and my little girl alone
In my one room little cabin, just me and my little girl alone
It makes a man feel so good when she wrap way back in your arms
The little room is so small, I can't even put up no cookin' stove
The little room is so small, till I can't put up no cookin' stove
But you can tell from the weather, it's so cold, so cold outdoors
I could hear it rainin', and see the lightnin' flashin' on my window pane
Could hear it rainin', could hear it rainin', and I could see the lightnin' flashin' on my window pane
But the little girl lay her head up in my chest and said "I love you, and I'm not ashamed"

Nine Below Zero

Yeah, ain't that a pity, people ain't that a cryin' shame
Ain't that a pity, I declare it's a cryin' shame
She wait till it got nine below zero, and put me down for another man
I give her all my money, all of my lovin' and everything
All of my money, all of my lovin' and everything
It done got nine below zero and she done put me down for another man
Nine below zero, the little girl she done put me down
Nine below zero, the little girl she done put me down
She know I don't have nowhere to stay, and I don't have not one dime

So that started me to ramblin',

Whoaw that started me to ramblin',

Uncle Sam is gonna give me a Thunderbolt, he want me to fly away up above the clouds
