Rag Mama Rag
Lyrics: Robbie Robertson
Music: Robbie Robertson

Rag Mama rag
I can't believe it's true
Rag Mama rag
What did you do
I go on up to the railroad track
Let the 4:19 scratch my back
Shag Mama shag
What's come over you
Rag Mama rag
I'm pullin out your gag
Gonna turn you loose
Like an old caboose
Got a tail I need to drag

I ask about your turtle
And you ask about the weather
I can't jump the hurdle
And we can't get together
We could be relaxin'
In my sleepin' bag
But all you want to do for me Mama is
Rag Mama rag
There's nowhere to go
Rag mama rag
Come on resin up the bow

Rag Mama rag
Where do you roam
Rag Mama rag
Bring your skinny little body back home
It's dog eat dog
And it's cat eat mouse
Rag Mama rag
All over my house

Hail stones beatin' on the roof
The bourbon is hundred proof
It's you and me and the telephone
Our destiny is quite well known
We don't need to sit and brag
All we gotta do is rag Mama rag Mama
Rag Mama rag
Where do you roam
Rag Mama rag
Bring your skinny little body back home
