Rollin' And Tumblin'

Written by Elmore James and recorded in 1959. This song be found on the Charly R&B CD "Elmore James: Shake Your Moneymaker".

 

I roll and I tumble, cried the whole night long

Yes I roll and I tumble, I cried the whole night long

I got up this morning, feeling that something going on wrong

 

Well now want you to love me baby, or please let me be

Yes love me baby, or please let me be

If you don't like my peaches please don't shake my tree

 

Well I want you to love me baby, and come on and say you'll be mine

I want you to love me baby, come and say you'll be mine

If you don't like my potatoes, please don't dig up my vine

 

Sunnyland

Seems like I heard that lonesome Sunnyland blow

Seems like I heard that lonesome Sunnyland blow

Now it blowing just like it won't be back no more

 

Well I feel bad this morning, feel just like I want to cry

Feel bad this morning, feel just like I want to cry

Well my baby rode that Sunnyland this mornin', she didn't even once say goodbye

 

I got a letter from my baby, and she said she was coming home

Got a letter from my baby, and she said she was coming home

Well sat around waiting, baby, and I hope it won't be long

 

She said, cool down papa, now you better change your way

She said, cool down papa, and you better change your way

Yeah it's true, you know I love you baby, and you gonna need my help some day
