I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water [Miller]

[Covers]

"A more traditional Chicago blues number [than the preceding rendition of Robert Johnson's 'If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day'], ...it contained lyrics from Jimmie Rodgers' 'T For Texas.' Pulling out solos from his black Flying V guitar, Corgan Sr. elicited cheers from the crowd and a look on his son's face that suggested, 'Damn, look at him!'"
--Sonicnet Music News of the World, 3/28/1999

 

Lyrics

Babe, we got to have a little talk
I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes hand to hand
Before I met you, go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down & sleep in a hollow log

What's the use, just like a Georgia mule
My friends laughed and they called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
Before I'll let you make a sap out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down & sleep in a hollow log

Love you baby but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
Before I'll have a woman I can't trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down & sleep in a hollow log
