Well I kissed a champagne lady and I drank from her shoe.     

So she took me upstairs to see my brand new tattoo        

I was dancing on her mattress and commencing to shout             

When a Louisville slugger knocked me over and out 

Tattooed, black and blue in Yazoo City.

 

I had 13 hundred dollars and my ironed shirt on

Now my picture of Bo Diddly and my lucky twenty is gone.

They took my cash, took my stash in Yazoo City.

But I’d go back in a flash to Yazoo City

 

bridge -

If you want to wake up with your drawers on

And your honey and your money to not be gone

If you never want to get the Yazoo City Blues

Write a letter to your mama and spit-shine your shoes

 

Now it looked like Mardi Gras at the county jail.

When Champagne and her entourage came to make my bail

Subdued and tattooed in Yazoo City

On the scene with the green in Yazoo City

Making a scene with the queen in Yazoo City

 

bridge #2 -

If losing is what you dread, 

Quit while you’re behind and you’ll be ahead, 

If the new world order is what you choose, 

Then you never want to get these Yazoo City Blues

 

Don’t take more than one sleepless night to discover

Champagne Lady got more than one other lover

Tattooed, black and blue in Yazoo City.

They took my cash. She took my stash in Yazoo City.

But I’d go back in a flash in Yazoo City
