Don't Start Me (to) Talkin' - Sonny Boy Williamson II/with Davy Graham/James Cotton/Johnny Darrow/Dr Feelgood/Etta James/The Doobie Brothers/The New York Dolls/The Savoy Brown Blues Band/Dion/Willie "Big Eyes" Smith/Rory Gallagher/The John Beggs Blues Band/Gary Moore/Levon Helm & Garth Hudson/Jimmy Rogers

Don't Start Me Talkin'
Well, I'm goin' down to Rosie's, stop at Fannie Mae's
Gonna tell Fannie what I heard, her boyfriend say

Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell her everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', 'cause somebody's got to go

Jack give his wife two dollars, go downtown and get some margarine
Gets out on the streets, ol' George stopped her
He knocked her down, and blackened her eye
She gets back home, tell her husband a lie

Don't start me to talkin, I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go

She borrowed some money, go to the beauty shop
Jim honked his horn, she begin to stop
She said, "Take me, baby, around the block,"
I'm goin to the beauty shop, where I can get my hair sock"

Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell everything I know
Well, to break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go
