I went down 31st Street, now
Just to buy me a drink of alcohol, honey
I went down 31st Street, now
Just to buy me a drink of alcohol, now
I told the old man to cut it half full a-water
But that old man, why'know, didn't-a put any drop at all in 

So, I'm drinkin' mine straight alley can 
See, an I went jus' staggerin' on down the street, now
I drinkin' my straight alley can, now
So I went jus' staggerin' down the street, now 
Now but my head got so heavy
My eyes couldn't even give a-peepin', now

Alright, Lacey 

(guitar & instrumental) ee!

My baby tells me, 'Papa, Papa'
She says, 'Sonny Boy, you know you ain't no good at all now'
My baby tell me, 'Papa, Papa' now 
She says 'Sonny Boy, you know you ain't no good at all'
She says, 'The reason you don't make me happy
Because you drink too much of this old alcohol now'

I said, 'But baby won't you go ridin' now
Oh, can I take you ridin' in my car now?'
I said, 'But baby won't you go ridin' now
Can I take you ridin' wit me in my car now?'
She said, 'But I'm scared you gonna drink alcohol 
Says, Sonny Boy, then we wouldn't ride very far.
