Bat Goddess Lyr Req: Ida Red (Land Norris) (9) RE: Lyr Req: Ida Red (Land Norris) 04 May 20


Jeff Warner sings "Ida Red".

Lyrics from his version --

Ida Red

Long as the meatís been a-layiní on the shelf,
I been sitting here by myself.

Chorus:
Ida Red, Ida Red,
Iím getting tired of eatiní that shorteniní bread.

Long as the grass grows in the field,
Gotta cook old John a solid meal.

Ainít but one man that I do fear,
Big Jack Johnson, and he ainít allowed here.

Going down town ainít a-gonna stay long,
Might as well put on your bonnet and gown.

Captain, oh Captain, has my money come?
Be here today or tomorrow one.

Big old boat cominí Ďround the bend,
Ainít doing nothing but killing men.



Linn
