"A Hundred And Ten In The Shade" lyrics

A Hundred And Ten In The Shade

Way out here in the cotton
Sun beating down so hard
Sweat rolling of this shovel
Digging in the devil's boneyard
Sure like a cool drink of water
Soft rag to soothe my face
Sure like a woman to talk to
In this place

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

Handle so hot I can't stand it
Might shrivel up and blow away
Noonday sun make you crazy
Least, that's what the old men say
Bottom land hard as a gravestone
Couldn't cut it with an axe
Gonna lay me down right here
And that's a fact

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

Sometimes late in the evening
Everything is quiet and still
I set here and think about leaving
Lord, I guess I never will
Heartache down in that city
Bright light scares me anyway
Sure like a woman to talk to
In this place

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Going way down
Mama won't you carry me

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
