Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low;
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door.

I woke up this morning, I had them Statesboro Blues,
I woke up this morning, had them Statesboro Blues.
Well, I looked over in the corner, and Grandpa seemed to have them too.

Well my momma died and left me,
My poppa died and left me,
I ain't good looking baby,
Want someone sweet and kind.

I'm goin' to the country, baby do you wanna go?
But if you can't make it baby, your sister Lucille said she wanna go.
(and I sure will take her).

I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen;
Well, I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen.
Well, now, she treat me like a king, yeah, yeah, yeah,
I treat her like a dog gone queen.

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve babe, to turn Uncle John from your door.

I started listening to ABB in 1971 and fell totally in love with the music and then of course all the guys and what they do. Statesboro Blues captures a moment in time that is so peripheral ( hope that is correct word for what I feel ) in instrumental GUITARS and then that soulful deep penetrating voice of Greg. WOW I want to be 20 again and experience it all over

"I ain't good lookin' baby, but I'm somewhat sweet and kind..." - might be true but great song. Thanks!

Thanks for lyrics. I always thought the line was "I ain't good lookin' baby, but I'm somewhat sweet and kind..." but this is just from listening. I don't have access to sheet music or anything.
