Moore's Ford Fats Blues

See that mean old fat man
Riding down the road,
While we pick his cotton
And tote the heavy load.

He's going to his table,
Filled with cakes and pies,
While yo'r mama's children
Eat the fat and rind.

Oh, Ho - ly Jesus!
See that sinful man
Going to church on Sunday
With the Bible in his hand.

He's going to his table,
Filled with cakes and pies,
While yo'r mama's children
Eat the fat and rind.

He has done Miss. Emma
And her sister, too;
He'll fatten all the women
Before he's through.

He's going to his table,
Filled with cakes and pies,
While yo'r mama's children
Eat the fat and rind.

Dorothy told the story
The day before she died;
He shot her in the mouth
Before the baby cried!

He's going to his table,
Filled with cakes and pies,
Lord, while yo'r mama's children
Eat the fat and rind.
