Now this is Peetie Wheatstraw, remember
People wanna know where do I prowl
This is Peetie Wheatstraw
People wanna know where do I prowl
Sometimes I prowl a far distant land
Sometimes I prowl on the rising clouds

An now I once was a good boy
Mama, I was good all over town
I say, I once was a good boy
Babe, I was good all over town
Well-well, nar' I don't see why
People tried to slam me down

When I first met you, little baby
Baby, this is the lie you told
I know when I first met you, baby
This is the lie you told
You said now you could get my money, baby
And then I will be made of silver and gold

(instrumental)

'What you gonna do, Charlie
You gonna play for me or just for money?'

'Money!'

Now what are you gon' do little baby, um-mm-mm
When your road gets dogged like mine?
Now what are you gon' do, baby
Now when your road gets dogged like mine?
Honey, now you would be worried
Mama now an bothered all the time

Now if anybody ask you baby, hmm
Honey, now who compose this song?
Well-well-well, now if anybody asks you
Mama, who compose this song?
Now-now, will you please tell 'em this is, Peetie Wheatstraw
Well now he have been here and gone.
