Well I send for my baby man, and she don't come
Send for my baby man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs, sure ain't gonna help her none.

If she gets unruly, thinks she don't want you
If she gets unruly and thinks she don't want you
Take my 32-20 now and break her half in two.

She got a 38 special, but I believe it's much too light
She got a 38 special, but I believe it's much too light
I got a 32-20, makes the camps all right.

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
Send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs sure ain't gonna help her none.

Gonna shoot my pistol, shoot my Gatling gun
Gonna shoot my pistol, got to shoot my Gatling gun
You made me love you, now your man has come.

Ah baby, where you stayed last night?
Ah baby, where you stayed last night?
You got your hair all tangled and you ain't talkin' right.

Her 38 special, boys, it do very well
Her 38 special, boys, it do very well
I got a 32-20 now it's a burnin' hell.

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
Send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in West Lebanon, sure ain't gonna help her none.

Hey hey baby, where you stay last night?
Hey hey baby, where you stay last night?
Didn't come home till the sun was shinin' bright.

Ah boys, I just can't take my rest
Ah boys, I just can't take my rest
With this 32-20 layin' up an' down my breast.  up
