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
