Jimmie Rodgers

"Blue Yodel No. 9 (Standin’ On The Corner)"

[Verse 1]
Standin' on the corner I didn't mean no harm
Along come a police he took me by the arm
It was down in Memphis on the corner of Beale and Main
He says big boy you'll have to tell me your name

[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee

[Verse 2]
I said you'll find my name on the tail of my shirt
I'm a Tennessee hustler I don't have to work
So listen all you rounders you better leave my women alone
'Cause I'll take my Special and run all you rounders home

[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee

[Verse 3]
My good gal love me, everybody knows
And she paid a hundred cash dollars to buy me a suit of clothes
She come to the joint, a forty-four in each hand
She said "step aside all you women and men 'cause I'm looking for my man"

[Refrain]
Dee-oh-dee-lay-ee, eh-ee, oh-dee-lay-ee
