Lyrics

If your man get personal, want you to have your fun
If your man get personal, want you to have your fun
Best come on back to Friars Point1, mama, and barrelhouse all night long
I got women’s in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
I got women’s in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
But my Friars Point1 rider, now, hops all over me I ain’t gon' to state no color but her, front teeth crowned with gold
I ain’t gon' to state no color but her, front teeth is crowned with gold
She got a mortgage on my body, now, and a lien2 on my soul
Lord, I’m goin' to Rosedale3, gon' take my rider by my side
Lord, I’m goin' to Rosedale3, gon' take my rider by my side
We can still barrelhouse baby, on the riverside
Now you can squeeze my lemon 'til the juice run down my…
(spoken: 'til the juice rune down my leg, baby, you know what I’m talkin' about)
You can squeeze my lemon 'til the juice run down my leg
(spoken: That’s what I’m talkin' 'bout, now)
But I’m goin' back to Friars Point1, if I be rockin’to my head
