Lyrics for TV Mama

TV MAMA Johnny Winter

Well I laid down last night
And I turned my TV on
You know I laid down last night
I turned my TV on
You know she's a good old box people
But I believe my tube is blown

Well my baby she was cryin'
Want me to get my TV fixed
Ohuuu she was cryin'
Wanna get my TV fixed
She said our TV needs service
And she needs it mighty quick

By the way now

Well I called the TV doctor
He came over right away
He said to see what he can do
He'd have to haul my tube away
I told no Damn well I'll never do
Man if you don't get the picture
I'm gonna do some work on you

Work a while go ahead now
(get the picture right?)

Got my TV working
My old tube is like brand new
And now I got my TV workin'
My old tube is like brand new
Yes come over baby
And I show my tube to you
haha
How do you like my tube?

The
following tabs I have worked out myself. Since I only play acoustic
and acoustic-slide guitar I don't have any tabs for his electric songs.
You already have TV-Mama but I have corrected the lyrics a bit. It's
still not perfect. 

                                  TV-MAMA    Johnny Winter
