Shake Shake Mama

Lyrics: Bob Dylan, Robert Hunter
Music: Bob Dylan

I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
Come back here, we can have some real fun

Well itís early in the evening and everything is still
Well itís early in the evening and everything is still
One more time Iím walking up on the big hill

Shake shake Mama like a ship going out to sea
Shake shake Mama like a ship going out to sea
You took all my money and you gave it to Richard Lee

Down by the river judge Simpson walking around
Down by the river judge Simpson walking around
Nothing shocks me more than that old clown

Some of you women you really know your stuff
Some of you women you really know your stuff
But your clothes are all torn and your language is a little too rough

Shake shake Mama shake until the break of day
Shake shake Mama shake until the break of day
Iím right here baby Iím not that far away

I'm motherless, fatherless almost friendless too
I'm motherless, fatherless almost friendless too
It's Friday morning on Franklin Avenue

Shake shake mama, raise your voice and pray
Shake shake mama, raise your voice and pray
If you're goin' on home better go the shortest way
