Shortenin' Bread
by The Tractors



Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread

Boy got the shakes don't know why
Every little thing make the poor boy cry
Mama call the doctor doctor done said
Boy done need himself some shortenin' bread

Mama's little baby loves shortenin' shortenin'
Mama's little baby loves shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread

Moses and the Children of Israel
Wanderin' in the desert tryin' to do God's will
Tired and hungry almost dead
God sent down some shortenin' bread

Mama's little baby loves shortenin' shortenin'
All God's children love shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread

Ain't no way to tell you baby what you mean to me
Give me just a taste of your love set me free
[ piano ]
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread

Ain't no way to tell you baby what you mean to me...

Ain't nothin' sweeter nothin' so fine
Sweet like honey and red red wine
Great gosh a mighty full speed ahead
Take a big bite of shortenin' bread

Mama's little baby loves shortenin' shortenin'
Mama's little baby loves shortenin' bread
Mama's little baby loves shortenin' shortenin'
All God's children love shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread
Shortenin' shortenin' shortenin' bread
