Lyrics below

Oh, I got me a woman she’s a pretty good woman at that
We live with a monkey and a Chinese acrobat
She calls me ‘Tex’, makes me wear a cowboy hat
But I don’t care she’s a pretty good woman at that

Nothing in the world make me treat that woman mean
She shaves my beard and she keeps my tractor clean
She burns my bread, makes me eat turnip greens
But I don’t care she’s a best little woman I’ve seen

Some folks they move out to California
And some folks they stay in Tennessee
And I don’t care where I’m a-headed
Just as long as that woman stand by me

Some folks they move out to California
And some folks they stay in Tennessee
Yeah, I don’t care where I’m a-headed
Just as long as that woman stand by me

Lookin’ at the weather do they spend my nights at home
Talking with my baby and blowing on the slide trombone
She talks in tongues oh, she really turns me on
With a woman like that a man never wants to roam

Some folks they move out to California
Some folks they stay in Tennessee
Yeah, I don’t care where I’m a-headed
Just as long as that woman stand by me
Just as long as that woman stand by me
Just as long as that woman stand by me
