Mel Tillis Good Woman Blues lyrics

My name you will find on the tail of my shirt

I’m a Tennessee hustler never do worse

I kiss a different woman with the fall of each dew

Always a-singing these good woman blues

 

I’ve been playing music back in Tennessee

Lot of women there lord they think the world of me

Memphis and Nashville, Chattanooga too

Always a-singing these good woman blues

 

Good woman blues lord they never get me down

Too many women always around

I strike like the lightning and bringing good news

Always a-singing these good woman blues

 

Well a woman in Dallas she’s on my mind

Texas women are the tie-me-down kind

I just keep on walking with my traveling shoes

Always singing these good woman blues

 

Well sunny California I can hear you call

Got more women there than a freight train can haul

Your warm red wine and your sun is good news

Always a-singing these good woman blues

 

Good woman blues lord they never get me down

Too many women always around

I strike like the lightning and bringing good news

Always a-singing these good woman blues
