Richland Women Blues (John Hurt) Give me red lipstick and a bright poppy rouge A shinglebob haircut and a shot of good booze CHORUS: Hurry down sweet Daddy, come blowin' your horn If you come too late your mama will be gone Come along young man, everything's settin right My husband gone away 'til late Saturday night Now I'm rarin' to go, got red shoes on my feet My mind is set right for tin lizzy seat Stop at the fashion shop, get the one that looks best Your own sweet mama wants a brand new dress Red rooster says, "Cockadoodle do doo" The Richland women say, "Any dude will do." Every Sunday morning, church watchin' me go My wings sprouted out, the preacher told me so. With rosy red garters and pink hose on my feet Turkey-red bloomer with a rumble seat Dress skirt high, then they cut low, Don't think I'm a sport, keep on watchin' me go. DS, TA
