Sweet Thang
By Jimmy Dean & Dotty West
written by Nat Stuckey

I slipped out of the house about sundown
      C                      G
While mama was a washing her hair
And you can bet your bottom dollar
She'll come looking for me
A7                            D7
When she'll find that I'm not there
And if she catches her sweet thang slipping around
  C                             G
I know there'll be the devil to pay
      C                                        G            C
Cause she'll come blowing like a cyclone right through that door
      G            D7          G
And I hear exactly what she'll say
Well has anybody here see sweet thang
        C                          G
I got a notion he'd be headed this way
Cause when my sweet thang's out tomcatting around
A7                           D7
Finds a sandbox like this to play
I wanna warn all you barroom roses
      C                         G
If my sweet thang should happen by
      C                           G                C
You'd better take my advice if you blink more than twice
      G                     D7      G
You'd better have something in your eyes
I gave my baby all my money on payday
       C                              G
Except a little she don't know that I got
Cause there's a little cute waitress down at the corner cafe
A7                               D7
And she seems to like me quite a lot
We were sitting in the back booth just a having a chat
        C                             G
And she believed in every word that I said
     C                       G           C
When that door blew open and mama walked in
        G              D7       G
Yelling loud enough to wake the dead
And she said
repeat #2
