Hey, Mr. Porter - Ralph Pruitt

Hey, Mr. Porter

Ralph Pruitt

(Ralph Pruitt, LARK PDL-1506, 1958)

Hey Mr. Porter if you please will
Put that bag in my hand
When I walk out this station
Ain't gonna rake or roam again
I'm gonna quit this roaming around
Yes, I'm gonna settle down

Well, I've been lot of places, seen a lot of things
Now all I think about's a wedding ring
And I know a woman that don't want a thing
But to settle down
I'm gonna quit this roaming around
Well, yes I'm gonna settle down

Well, I used to know a girl that lived in this town
And I know that she used to be free
That gal told me a long time ago
That she would always love me
I'm gonna quit this roaming around
Well, yes I'm gonna settle down

We're gonna buy a piece of land that suits her and me
Now there's two, but there'll soon be three
You'd better hurry porter if you please
And put that bag in my hand
We're gonna quit this roaming around
Well, yes I'm gonna settle down
I'm gonna quit this roaming around
Well, yes I'm gonna settle down
