  • Now, listen here people
  • Think I'm tired of bein' a bum
  • For the breaks I'm gettin' now
  • I done got to be nothin' but a crumb
  • I've got tired
  • Of these breaks they givin' me
  • I'm gon' pack my grip
  • An I'm going back to Tennessee
  • Now, I walk all day
  • Can't find no work at all
  • I'm broke an' hungry all the winter
  • And ragg'dy all the fall
  • I walked all day
  • My feet got wet n' damp
  • I've been sufferin' two, three days
  • From the miss meal cramp
  • I was barefooted, *****
  • I was in the ice an snow
  • With all my yas-yas, out
  • You could see my big toe
  • I was barefooted
  • Didn't have on no shoes
  • And the rocks, gravel and concrete
  • Is givin' my soles the blues
  • An 'fore I'd let winter in St. Louis
  • Get the best of me
  • I'd get on a freight train an walk
  • Back to Memphis,Tennessee
  • 'Cause I've done got tired
  • Of these breaks they givin' me
  • I'm gon' pack my grip
  • An I'm going back to Tennessee
  • Now other day I woked up
  • To a big healthy garbage can
  • And drugs my stiff back on it
  • Back of a natural man
  • I says, 'Razzy ham bone
  • And skanky muffin
  • Get back all your coffee grounds
  • Cause you know I ain't bluffin'
  • An 'fore I'd let winter in let St. Louis
  • Take advantage of me
  • I'd go back down south
  • Where all chumps oughta be
  • 'Cause I've done got tired
  • Of these breaks they givin' me
  • I'm gon' pack my grip
  • And I'm goin' back to Tennessee
  • Now, I'm 'onna sing this verse
  • Now, ain't gon' sing any mo'
  • 'Cause I'm gettin' kind-a warm
  • An you know I've got to go
  • I love to clown for ya'all
  • An I love to act a monkey
  • But I don't wanna get too hot
  • 'Cause I'm scared I'm liable to get a bad cold
  • 'Cause I done got tired
  • Of these breaks they givin' me
  • I'm 'onna pack my grip
  • And I'm goin' back to Tennessee.
