or
Levon Helm

Rag mama rag, I can't believe it's true
Rag mama rag, what did you do?
I crawled up to the railroad track
Let the four nineteen scratch my back

Shag mama shag now, what's come over you
Rag mama rag, I'm a pulling out your gag
Gonna turn you a loose like an old caboose
Got a tail, I need a drag

I ask about your turtle
And you ask about the weather
Well, I can't jump the hurdle
And oh, you can't get together

And we could be relaxing in my sleeping bag
But all you want to do for me, mama
Is a rag mama rag, there's nowhere to go
Rag mama rag, come on risen up the bow

Rag mama rag, where do you roam?
Rag mama rag, bring your skinny little body back home
It's dog eat dog and cat eat mouse
You can rag mama rag all over my house

Hail stones beatin' on the roof
The bourbon is a hundred proof
It's you and me and the telephone
Our destiny is quite well known

We don't need to sit and brag
All we gotta do is
Rag mama rag, mama rag

Rag mama rag, where do you roam?
Rag mama rag, bring your skinny little body back home
