From the recording Three Legged Dog

Lyrics

One thing about them young girls, you can’t keep em round too long
They start messin’ and pokin’ they noses where it don’t belong
Just cause I like them city womens and my liquor when it’s strong
Ain’t no reason to accuse me of doin’ that little girl wrong

Now, she done gone and left me, left me sick and busted flat
All I got is a three legged dog and that damn crooked head cat
Left me all alone, sick and busted flat
Ain’t gon be messin’ with no more young girls
People, what you think of that

That dog, he get to howlin’, howlin’ on through the night
Girl ain’t around to feed him, he know that just ain’t right
Cat, he don’t know nothin’ cept how to spit and bite
Since that little girl left home, all he want to do is fight

That girl, she done gone and left me, left me sick and busted flat
All I got is a three legged dog and that damn crooked head cat
Left me all alone, sick and busted flat
Ain’t gon be messin’ with no more young girls
People, what you think of that

Gon find me a regular woman, one who done learned to cook and sew
One who don’t care bout knowin’ things she don’t need to know
Gon give that woman good lovin’, enough till she don’t need no more
Won’t be no fussin’ and fightin’ when I’m booked to go

Lord, that girl done left me, left me sick and busted flat
All I got is a three legged dog and that damn crooked head cat
Left me all alone, sick and busted flat
Ain’t gon be messin’ with no more young girls
People, what you think of that
