(piano & harmonica)

Look on yonder'd wall
Hand me down my walkin' cane
Look on yonder'd wall
Hand me down my walkin' cane
Yeah, I'm gonna find me woman
Hoo-well, you get ready to meet your man

Now baby, I've been worried
Ever since Veteren's Day
Ev'rytime I pick up the paper
Yo' man is comin' this a-way

Look on yonder'd wall
Hand me down my walkin' cane
Said, I'm gonna find me woman
Woo-hoo, look, here come yo' man

Now yo' man don't want no two keys
Made to his do'
He don't want no strange shoes
Layin' down on his flo'

He don't want no hat, mama
Three sizes too small
He don't want my clothes
Hangin' up on his wall

Look on yonder'd wall
Hand me down my walkin' cane
I'm gonna find me woman
Woo-hoo, wait babe
Baby, here come yo' man

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now your man have been in the army
'n I know that's awful, tough
I don't know how many men that he done kill
But I think he done killed enough

Look on yonder'd wall
Hand me down my walkin' cane
I'm gonna find me woman
Hoo-hoo, well baby
Baby, here come yo' man.
