TALL DARK HANDSOME MAN
(Bobby Sisco)
BOBBY SISCO (CHESS 1650, 1957)

Well the telephone's buzzin', news going 'round
Tall dark handsome man in town
Long Cadillac, fine side-walls
Top lift back, he's a cool-cool ball
Tall dark and handsome, tall dark and handsome man
I was standin' on the corner as he stopped by
My baby said to me, I'll say you bye-bye
And she rode away with this tall dark and handsome man
(Go cats!)

Well I know I'm a fool, my girl's been took
Now all I can do is stand here and look
While she drives away with this tall dark and handsome man
(Go Johnny, go boy!)

Well I'm a poor country boy down on the farm
I don't wanna do you no harm
Buy me a Cadillac, long and blue
Take my baby back, away from you
Tall dark and handsome, tall dark and handsome man
