Manfred Mann – Driva Man Lyrics

Driva man he made a life
But the Mamie ain’t his wife
Choppin’ cotton don’t be slow
Better finish out your row
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time

Get to work and root that stump
Driva man’ll make ya jump
Better make that hammer ring
Driva man’ll start to swing
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time

Get to work and root that stump
Driva man’ll make ya jump
Keep a movin’ with that plow
Driva man’ll show ya how
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time

Driva man
Driva man
Driva man

Driva man

Driva man’s the kind of boss
Ride a man and lead a horse
When his cat ‘o nine tails fly
You’d be happy just to die
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time

Runaway and you’ll be found
By his big old red bone hound
Pater oller bring ya back
Make ya sorry that you black
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time

Driva man he made a life
But the Mamie ain’t his wife
Choppin’ cotton don’t be slow
Better finish out your row
Ain’t but two things on your mind
Driva man and quittin’ time
