"Cherry Red" lyrics - JIMMY REED

"Cherry Red"
(Pete Johnson / Big Joe Turner)

Run here, pretty baby, honey sit down on your daddy's knee
I wanna tell ev'rybody how, you've been sendin' me

A honey now, that's your secret, better it, better ya keep it to yourself
Honey if you tell me baby, I might tell somebody else

I ain't, never loved, and I hoped that I, I never will
'Cause a lovin' proposition baby, might get someone killed

You can lead me, pretty baby, 'cause you know I can be lead
I want ya to squeeze me baby 'til my, face turns cherry red
