Music For My Mother

{G Clinton}

Man, I was in a place

Called Keeprunnin’, Mississippi one time

And I heard someone on my way by

Sounded a little something like raw funk to me

So I slowed down and took a listen

And this is all I could hear, baby

Whoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-ha Whoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-ha Whoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-ha Whoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-haWhoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-ha Whoa-hah-hey Whoa-hah-ha

It got so good to me, man, that I stopped runnin’

My feets was tired anyhow

So I reached in my inside pocket

And got my harp out

Sit down by old beat-up railroad train

And get me get myself

A little of that old funky thang

{vocal "harmonica" solo}

Yeah!

Yeah, I’m ?

Yeah, whoa!

Yeah

Mm-m-hmmm

Yeah

Can you all feel what I mean?

This is what you call

Waaay-back yonder funk

Whoa ha hey

Whoa ha ha

Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha Whoa ha hey Whoa ha ha

Say it loud!

I’m funky and I’m proud!

I’m aging!

Old funk
