By Charley Patton


Gonna get me a banty
Put it in my backyard (x2)
When he sees a stranger comin'
He'll flap his wings and crow

What you want with a hen don't
Cackle when she lay (x2)
What you want with a woman
Won't do nothing you say

What you want with a rooster
Won't crow for day (x2)
What you want with a woman
Won't do nothing you say

Take my picture
Hang it up on Jackson wall (x2)
Anybody ask you
Tell 'em that's all you saw

Hooks in the water
And my cork's on top (x2)
How can I lose lord
With all the help I've got

I know my doggy
When I hear him bark (x2)
I Know my rider by feeling her in the dark
