Ride On Josephine - Sleepy Labeef

Ride On Josephine

Sleepy Labeef

(Ellas McDaniel a.k.a. Bo Diddley, Wayside 1651 - Picture 1937)

Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, gal you got a runnin' machine
Baby, ride on Jospehine, baby ride on
Josephine's a-drivin' a hot rod Ford
Something that'll really eat up the road
It's souped up from a-front to rear
Somebody that'll really dig away from here
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, gal you got a runnin' machine
Baby, ride on Josephine, baby ride on

Josephine's Ford is a-gettin' real hot
Found it sitting in a used car lot
When she put it into the drive
Man, I couldn't believe my own eyes
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, gal you got a runnin' machine
Baby, ride on Josephine, baby ride on

Yeah Josephine, look a-here child
I said I'll fill your tank if you need some gas
Well honey, you don't look like you're gonna last
I said, I better mind my own business
Look a-here baby, I said you're my business
You're good business baby
And I just love good business
You better shut up and come overhere and ride with me
Yeah, you better ride with me till you get ahead
What kinda car I'm driving?
Well listen now, I'm gonna tell you

I got a fourty-eight Cadillac with Thunderbird wings
I tell you gal, it's the running thing
I can burn rubber from gear to gear
Believe I can take it away from here
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Josephine, ride on
Ride on Jospehine, gal you got a runnin' machine
Baby, ride on Jospehine, baby ride on

I said goodbye, Josephine
I'm goin' now
I'm really gonna put some dirt in your eye
Here I go!
