Ride And Roll - Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcghee

Ride And Roll

Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcghee

(Terry - McGhee, GROOVE 0135, 1956)

Give me a ticket, long as my right arm

Mister red cap porter, now help me with my heavy load
Mister red cap porter, now help me with my heavy load
'Cause the woman I love, she's further on down the road
Well, I know my baby bound to jump and shout
Well, I know my baby bound to jump and shout
When that bus roll up, ole Sonny come walkin' out
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I'm gonna find my baby, carryin' this heavy load

I wanna write me a letter, gonna mail it in behalf
I wanna write me a letter, gonna mail it in the air
Wanna let your man know, I got me a woman somewhere
Well, I know my baby bound to love me some
Well, I know my baby bound to love me some
Throw my arms around her, like a circle around the sun
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I'm gonna find my baby, carryin' this heavy load

Catch a Greyhound bus, gonna ride until it turns right around
Catch a Greyhound bus, gonna ride until it turns right around
Gonna find my baby, don't think she can be found
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I'm gonna find my baby, carryin' this heavy load

I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I wanna ride-ride-ride, I wanna roll-roll-roll
I'm gonna find my baby, carryin' this heavy load
