Dave T Tune Req: I Believe I'll Dust My Broom (R Johnson) (13) RE: Seeking Tab and Tuning to 09 Dec 98


I think this should do it. I tried using some TAB writing software and converting to text, but I wasn't happy with the results. I ended up using a text editor. Once that was done I've converted it to HTML. I'm pretty sure there aren't any tab characters in the text so this should work, since I've tested this with my browser. However, if it doesn't, we can always ask Joe Offer to fix it up.

I'm gon' get up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend the black men you been lovin'

I'm gon write a letter, telephone every town I know
If I can't find her in West Helena
she must be in East Monroe I know

I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meets
I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meets
She's a no good doney,
they shouldn't allow her on the streets

I believe, I believe I'll go back home
I believe, I believe I'll go back home
You can mistreat me here baby,
but you can't when I go home

I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend the black men you been lovin'
girlfriend can get my room

I'm gon' call up China, see is my good girl over there
I'm gon' call up China, see is my good girl over there
If I can't find her on Phillipine's Island,
she must be in Ethiopia somewhere
