My Two Timin' Woman

My Two Timin' Woman

Escrita por Hank Snow

Interpretada por Hank Snow (Bluebird 55-3242, 1948)

La grabación más antigua que se conoce de Buddy Holly es su versión de este tema del canadiense Hank Snow y se remonta, posiblemente, al año 1949. Buddy, con sólo 13 años, la registró en casa de sus padres, en el número 3315 de 36th. Street, en Lubbock. El sonido de la grabación deja, evidentemente, bastante que desear, aunque su valor histórico y testimonial resulta indudable.

I woke up this mornin' in a terrible mood,
You talk about a woman treatin' a good man rude
She left me talkin' to myself just a lookin' at that mean old wall
Well she had another daddy waitin' down at the end of the hall

Well she changes with the weather like the leaves I recall
She blossoms in the spring and then she's gone in the fall
My two timin' woman with a heart of solid stone
She tells me that she loves me but her heart's a little under grown

She said she'd never leave me but she got that urge to roam,
Now she gets around the country like a stream-boat on the foam
Never changin' course, she just travels along that same old way
I hope she goes driftin', rolls along back home some day

Now, if I ever find her, gonna chain her to the floor,
Then tell her: "Now sit there woman, 'cause you ain't leavin' no more"
I'm gonna tame you woman till you're eatin' from my hand
It ain't that I don't love you, honey it's just to make you understand
