Rootin' Ground Hog Lyrics

Rootin' Ground Hog by Sonny Boy Williamson I  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Rootin' Ground Hog Mama, I'm the rooting ground hog
An I root both nights and days
Yes, I'm the rooting ground hog, baby
And I root both nights and days
I want some good lookin' mama to come here, now
Ple-ease to hurry these blues away

I went home last night, babe
Just about the break-a-day
I have to grab the pillow
Where my baby used to lay

I'm a rooting ground hog
You might need me some sweet day
Better look before Joe done lower'd
Yoo-hoo, way I love you, be so 'fer away

'Lee's up'

I'm a rooting ground hog
And I roots ev'rywhere I go
'Play it on me boy, play it!'
I'm a rooting ground hog, babe
Roots ev'rywhere I go
I'm tryin' to keep my woman taking my love, an
She handed out candy to Mr. So and So

Let me tell you now, woman
Just before I go
Gimme back my money
I'll catch a train and go

I'm a rooting ground hog
Yeah, an I'll root ev'rywhere I go
Well, my baby had a nerve to tell me
That she didn't want me no mo'

I'm a-leavin' Chicago
Ain't gonna leave my babe no mo'
'Play it on now, boys'
I'm leavin' Chicago, yoo-ooo
I ain't gonna leave my babe no mo'
I'm that good rooting ground hog
I got a home anywhere I go

Drive over this mo'nin'
I looked down the line
Couldn't hear nothin' but my
Freight train, cryin'

I'm a rooting ground hog
Roots both nights an days
I want some good lookin' mama to come 'ere
Ple-ease drives these blues away.
