Tell Me Mama, Tell Me Right

Lyrics: Jackie Greene
Music: Jackie Greene

Sung by Jackie Greene with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007. Note that it's a Jackie Greene original, not either the Little Walter song "Tell Me Mama" or the Bob Dylan song "Tell Me Mamma." Nor is it the Robert Hunter lyric Tell Me Mama.

Tell me mama, tell me right
Where did you sleep last night?
You better tell me baby
So I don't lose my mind

Tell me honey, tell me right
Who llights your fire at night?
Tell me baby
So I don't lose my mind

Oh you gotta tell me baby
What I wanna know
Or you ain't gonna see
Me no more

You better tell me baby
Where I fit in
And take a look at what your
Your cat dragged in

Tell me mama, tell me right
Where did you sleep last night?
You better tell me baby
So I don't lose my mind

Oh you'd better tell me mama, tell me right
Where did you sleep last night?
You better tell me baby
So I don't lose my mind

Oh tell me honey, tell me yes
What you got underneath that dress?
Tell me baby
So I don't lose my mind
I don't lose my mind
