Jim Dixon Lyr Req: A Change in Business (All Around) (13) Lyr Add: GONNA CHANGE MY BUSINESS ALL AROUND 06 Jun 20


My transcription from the recording on YouTube:


GONNA CHANGE MY BUSINESS ALL AROUND
(Buddy Jones)
As recorded by Buddy Jones on Decca 5967 A, 1941.

Gotta change my bid'ness all aroun'.
Gonna move out in a little country town,
Get me a mule an' a turnin' plow somehow.
I'll raise the cornbread that I eat.
Gonna fill my smokehouse full of meat,
For I'm changin' bus'ness all aroun'.

I'll get me a pig an' a Jersey cow,
Dominicker hen an' an old Shanghai.
I'll build my henhouse ten foot from the groun'.
When the cowbells ring, the pig will squeal,
The old Shanghai'll do the chicken reel,
For I'm changin' bus'ness all aroun'.

I'll plant me a patch of sorghum cane,
Get me a wife this comin' spring.
I'll run molasses down them 'tater rows,
And when them 'taters begin to sprout,
My humpback wife can dig 'em out,
For I'm changin' bus'ness all aroun'.

I'll get me a sly(?) an' humpback mule,
Send my kids right on to school.
I'll educate them in this country life.
I'll dress 'em up in the latest style
From the youngest one to the oldest chil',
For I'm changin' bus'ness all aroun'.

I'll plant my pea patch on a hill,
The old blackeye an' the whippoorwill,
My turnip greens can grow in my backyard.
I'll make a livin' if I try.
To the city life I'll say goodbye,
For I'm changin' bus'ness all aroun'.
