lyrics

9. Denver to Dallas
Roderick/DeBacker/Payne (Clean Slate Music-BMI)


Been down to Denver
Been to Dallas too y'all
I been to East St Louis
Had the St louis blues y'all
Daddy used to be a rollin" stone
Mama was the kind
To keep a man at home

He used to be the kind that liked to
Run around y'all
Mama took a trick and it was
One for one y'all
Daddy used to be a rollin" stone
Mama was the kind
To keep a man at home

Ways of the women
Scare me some y'all
Do what you do
Like it’s never been done y’all
Daddy used to be a rollin" stone
Mama was the kind
To keep a man at home

Waco folks eat blackeyed peas y'all
A railroad man chews a dirty breeze
From Denver to Dallas they all agree
Poor dont mean they're easy to please
Daddy used to be a rollin" stone
Mama was the kind
To keep a man at home
