Early In The Morning

Early In The Morning

Sonny Boy Williamson

Now, when a little girl becomin' twelve years old
Beginin' to think she grown
Well, you can never catch that kinda
Little girl at home

But you have to go there early in the mornin'
Baby, 'bout the break of day
Now, you oughta see me grab the pillow
Where my baby used to lay

Now, that I've got a little woman
Her name is, Miss Kate
She told me to come to the house this mo'nin'
I got there about half past eight

She ask, 'I told you, come early in the mo'nin'
Baby, 'bout the break of day'
Now, ya oughta see me grab the pillow
Where my baby used to lay

I said, 'Look-a-here, woman
You fool with too many men
I can't never come to see you in the evenin
I have to come 'n see you when I can'

You tell me, 'Come early in the mo'nin'
Baby, 'bout the break of day'
Now, you oughta see me grab the pillow
Where my baby used to lay

(harmonica & guitar)

Well now, I said, 'Look-a-here, woman (good!)
I ain't gonna fool 'round wit' you, no mo'
I know you don't love me
You out, 'round with Mr. So 'n So

You tell me, 'Come early in the mo'nin'
Baby, 'bout the break of day'
Now, ya oughta see me grab the pillow
Where my baby used to lay.
