GUEST,jeff Lyr Add: Cakewalk into Town (Taj Mahal) (10) Taj Mahal song lyrics... 15 Nov 09

Checked all the usual suspects(, etc), but can't remember the title. Some of the lyrics are:

Work it done got scarce and work it done got hard
Spend the whole day pretty mama stealin' chickens from the rich folks yard

I'm gonna go out for a picnic in the country
gonna lay around all day
I might just do nothin', but just while my time away

Well, I woke up feelin' so good I'm gonna lay back down again
Throw your big leg on me mama I might not feel this good again.

The title might be 'Cakewalk Into Town', but I'm not sure. There're more verses as I recall. Any leads or additional lyrics would be greatly appreciated. Used to do this song years ago, but it was never a mainstay in my set list(s), so my level of recall is compromised. Thank you in advance. Jeff
