  The Minnesota Hotel Tape: Home of Bonnie Beecher, Minneapolis MN - 22.dec.1961  

Well put your arms around me like a circle in the sun
Stay with me baby like my easy ridin' done.
If you don't think i love you, look what a fool i've been
If you don't think i'm sinkin', look what a hole i'm in
I'm stealin', stealin'
Pretty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' back to my good ol' used to be.

Well the woman i love she's about my size
She's a married woman, comes to see me sometime.
If you don't think i love you, look what a fool i've been
If you don't think i'm sinkin', look what a hole i'm in
I'm stealin', stealin'
Pretty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' back to my good ol' used to be.

Well the woman i love she's so far away
The woman i hate, i see her every day.
If you don't think i love you, look what a fool i've been
If you don't think i'm sinkin', look what a hole i'm in
I'm sinkin', stealin'
Pretty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' back to my good ol' used to be.

If you don't think I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.
I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama won't you tell on me.

Well put your arms around me like a circle in the sun,
Stay with me baby like my easy rider done.

If you don't think I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.
If you don't think I love you, look what a fool I've been.
I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama won't you tell on me.
Well I'm stealin' back to my good old used to be.

Well I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama won't you tell on me.
Well I'm stealin' back to my good old used to be.

I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama won't you tell on me.
Well I'm stealin' back to my good old used to be.  up

  Basement of Gerde's Folk City, NYC - 8.feb.1963  

Look here baby, what's the matter with you?
It ain't your honeyest thing to do?
Don't believe that I love you, look what a fool I've been,
Don't believe I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.
I believe I'm sinking what a hole I'm in.
I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me.
I'm stealin' back to my same old used to be.

Stay around me like a circle in the sun,
tay with me baby like my easy rider done.
If you don't believe what a fool I've been,
If you don't believe I'm sinking what a hole I'm in.
I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me
That I'm stealin' back to my same old used to be.

She's a custom made woman to hand me down.

If you don't believe what a fool I've been,

I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me
