Driva Man - Max Roach lyrics


Driva' man he made a life.
But the Mamie ain't his wife.

Choppin' cotton don't be slow
Better finish out your row

Keep a movin' with that plow
Driva' man'll show ya how

Git to work and root that stump
Driva' man'll make ya jump

Better make your hammer ring
Driva' man'll start to swing

Ain't but two things on my mind
Driva' man quittin' time

Driva' man he made a life.
But the Mamie ain't his wife.

Choppin' cotton don't be slow
Better finish out your row

Keep a movin' with that plow
Driva' man'll show ya how

Git to work and root that stump
Driva' man'll make ya jump

Better make your hammer ring
Driva' man'll start to swing

Ain't but two things on my mind
Driva' man quittin' time

Driva' man de kind of boss
Ride a man and lead a horse

When his cat 'o nine tail fly
You'd be happy just to die

Runaway and you'll be found
By his big old red bone hound

Pater oller bring ya back.
Make ya sorry you is black.

Driva' man he made a life.
But the Mamie ain't his wife.

Ain't but two things on my mind.
Driva' man and quittin' time...
