Galvanized Washing Tub Recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens Written by Cottonseed Clark and Chet Turner
G Did you ever take your Saturday bath
And try to wash and scrub
While squatting down on your haunches D7 G In a galvanized washing tub
If not then you ain't missed a thing
But I'm tellin' you what's right
I done it till I was almost grown D7 G Every doggone Saturday night
In summertime it was bad enough
But in winter it got rough
A-spreading papers and filling kettles D7 G And all that sort of stuff
But gettin' ready for that ordeal
Was only half the rub
Of takin' a bath on Saturday night D7 G In a galvanized washing tub
Did you ever stand there stripped to the skin
I wood stove bakin' your hide
A-dreadin' to punch you darned foot D7 G In for fear you'd burn alive
Finally you got the temperature right
And into the tub you'd crawl
And when that cold steel touched your back D7 G You'd squeal like a fresh stuck hog
You get out of the tub and next to the stove
And stand there a-drippin' and a-shakin'
The front of your body is a-freezin' to death D7 G While the backside you're a-bakin'
A-shiverin' and a-shakin' and a-burnin'
And a bakin' that's the price I had to pay
That awful ordeal will haunt me D7 G Until I'm old and gray
I ain't thru yet thru somethin' else
But I've bein' a-wantin' to say
I was the youngest of all the kids D7 G That bathed every Saturday
There we all bathed according to age
And I fell last in order
Which meant I had to wash myself D7 G In the same dead-blamed old water
I'm a man of clean habits
And believe in a bath a week
It helps to keep me healthy D7 G And it freshens my physique
But if I had my druthers
I'd rather eat a bug
Than to take my Saturday bath again D7 G In a galvanized washing tub
