“Fannin St. (Mr. Tom Hughes’ Town)”

Follow me down
Follow me down
Follow me down
To Mr. Tom Hughes’ town (Ooh-ooh-ooh)

My mama told me
Little sister too
“Women on Fannin Street
Gonna be the death of you” (Ooh-ooh-ooh)

I went to my mama
“Mama, you don’t know
Women on Fannin Street kill me
Why don’t you let me go?” (Ooh-ooh-ooh)

My mama commenced her crying
I couldn’t stand to hear her cry

I went to my mama
Fell down on my knees
I said, “Lordy, mama
Won’t you forgive me please?” (Ooh-ooh-ooh)


Anybody ask you
Who wrote this song
Tell ’em it was Huddie Ledbetter
He’d been here and gone (Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)
