Tennessee Toddy Lyrics

Artist: Marty Robbins
Album: Rock'n Roll'n Robbins [Columbia]

Well, me and my baby was a-walkin€™ down the road
Just a-hoppin€™ along like two little toads€
I looked down at her; I said, €œWhat can we do?€?
She said, €œLet€™s go someplace where we can hop to the blues!€?

I said, €œI don€™t know a place where we can do such a thing€€?
She said, €œI know a place, and, man, it€™s just a dream!
It€™s just a little spot on the outside of town
Where we can really pick €™em up and put €™em down!€?

So we went to a place called €œEverybody€™s€?
There I met a little chick called €œthe Tennessee Toddy€?€
The reason she was called €œthe Tennessee Toddy€?
Was that she was all legs with a little bitty body,
But that cat could go, yeah, she was gone, gone, along gone,
And I€™ll tell you all about it in the very next verse of my song.

She was long and lean like a green string bean:
Calm and collected and cool and keen!
She was all of this and a whole lot more;
When my baby saw me watching her, she threw me out the door
And we were gone, yeah, we were gone, along gone,
And I€™ll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

I took my baby home and she said, €œGood night€€?
She said, €œBe real good and sleep real tight!€?
I rushed right back to Everybody€™s
€™Cause I had to get acquainted with the Tennessee Toddy!
So I left, yeah, I was gone, gone, along gone,
And I€™ll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

I was back there jumpin€™ with Toddy at three
When in walked a gent twice as big as me
He looked real mean and mad and sore;
He made for me and I made for the door,
Just a-runnin€™, yeah, I was gone, gone, along gone,
And there ain€™t no more, so this is the end of my song€
