Mean Disposition

I was listening Mean Disposition and
as i was searching for the lyrics i fund these on the official web site
http://www.rorygallagher.com/#/songs/me ... _the_g-man

But these are actually the lyrics of
Mean Disposition - in Rolling Stones Voodoo lounge album
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiGKZ1nBouk

I hope someone to correct this.

As you all know Rory is performing a Muddy Waters song
http://tidido.com/a35184372138037/al543 ... 9e148e8388
And here are the original lyrics
http://lyrics.wikia.com/wiki/Muddy_Wate ... isposition

Since Rory liked to change the lyrics very often i was not surprised when I fund two different versions in you tube .
I did my best but feel free to correct me if i am wrong,or fill in the missing words.



She got a mean disposition, she got low-down, dirty ways
She got a mean disposition, she got low-down, dirty ways
I keep hoping, I keep trusting', that girl might change her low-down ways

Why can't i be happy ,just like everybody else?
Tell me why can't i be happy, just like everybody else?
I've been hanging around Chicago, I been grieving my fool self to death

I’ve done roam and I’ve done rambled, long enough to know
You know I’ve roam and I’ve rambled ,surely long enough to know
You can't find yourself no heaven ,no matter in this round world to go

She got a mean disposition, she got low down, dirty ways
She got a mean disposition, she got low-down, dirty ways
I keep hoping i keep preying, that girl might change her low down ways




She got a mean disposition, she got low-down, dirty ways
She got a mean disposition, she got low-down, dirty ways
I keep hoping, I keep trusting', this girl might change her low down ways

Why can't i be happy, just like everybody else?
Tell me why can't i be happy, just like everybody else?
You know I've been hanging around Cork city, grieving' myself half to death

I’ve done roam and I’ve done rambled, surely long enough to know
But I’ve roam and I’ve rambled ,surely long enough to know
You can't find yourself no heaven, ...... nowhere you go

Take my number baby, please write it down on your wall
Please take my number baby, please write it down on your wall
I use the international code, i am there any time you call

She got a mean disposition, she got low down, dirty ways
She got a mean disposition, this girl got low-down, dirty ways
I keep hoping, I keep trusting, this little girl might change her low down ways
Too late too much too soon

Here is the lyrics for Snatch It Back and Hold It by Junior Wells from the Hoodoo Albums and the YouTube video.
Snatch it back and hold it
Baby one more time
I ain't doing too bad, baby
I got you on my mind
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
You having a durn good time
All the kids in the neighborhood


I can't help myself
Somebody got to help me
'Cause I can't help myself
I'm not doing too bad, baby
You know
I ain't got no brand new bag

Somebody help me
I can't help myself
Somebody better help me
'Cause I can't help myself
And I ain't doin' too bad, baby
And I ain't got no brand new bag

Snatch it back and hold it
I wanna tell you where it's at
All the kids in the neighborhood
They're doing a brand new dance
Snatch it back and hold it
I wanna show you where it's at

Said one more time
Just one more time
Hey, hey, hey, hey, ee
Baby, one more time
All the kids in the neighborhood
They know just where it's at

Snatch it back and hold it
Snatch it back and hold it
Hey, hey, hey, hey, ee
Snatch it back and hold it
Said hey, hey, hey, hey eehe
Hey!

And then here are Rory's lyrics for I Ain't Know Saint from the Defender album:-

RORY GALLAGHER LYRICS
 Play and Win 
"I Ain't No Saint"

I ant no saint
I can't turn the other cheek
I ain't no saint
But you can cool my temper
By the words you speak
I'll tell you straight from the shoulder
Straight from the hip
I'm falling over, she makes the pieces fit
If I get arrested or in some legal twist
She talks to the judge and gets the case dismissed
I ain't no saint
Won't make it through the pearly gates
I feel alright down hear lord
I think heaven's gonna have to wait
She doesn't tell me how to make a living
Don't lock her love up with a key

If I'm down my head is spinning
Don't call a doctor or a priest
I ain't no saint
Won't tow the party line
I ain't no saint
But you get my nomination
Every single time
I ain't no saint
Won't make it through the pearly gates
I feel alright down here, Lord
I think heavens gonna have to wait
I'll tell you straight from the shoulder
Straight from the hip
I feel alright down here, Lord
I think Heavens gonna have to wait

I like how Rory uses the same similar music from Snatch It Back and Hold it on I Ain't No Saint. Much slower sexier beat and Rory is adding his own lyrics to it and musical style. Its great how Rory was progressive in the blues. Subrata.x

Muddy Waters Rolling Stone lyrics and you tube video:-
MUDDY WATERS LYRICS
 Play and Win 
"Rollin' Stone"

Well, I wish I was a catfish,
Swimmin in a oh, deep, blue sea
I would have all you good lookin women,
Fishin, fishin after me
Sure 'nough, a-after me
Sure 'nough, a-after me
Oh 'nough, oh 'nough, sure 'nough

I went to my baby's house,
And I sit down oh, on her steps.
She said, "Now, come on in now, Muddy
You know, my husband just now left
Sure 'nough, he just now left
Sure 'nough, he just now left"
Sure 'nough, oh well, oh well

Well, my mother told my father,
Just before hmmm, I was born,
"I got a boy child's comin,
He's gonna be, he's gonna be a rollin stone,
Sure 'nough, he's a rollin stone
Sure 'nough, he's a rollin stone"
Oh well he's a, oh well he's a, oh well he's a

Well, I feel, yes I feel,
Feel that I could lay down oh, time ain't long
I'm gonna catch the first thing smokin,
Back, back down the road I'm goin
Back down the road I'm goin
Back down the road I'm goin
Sure 'nough back, sure 'nough back

Taste Catfish lyrics. Pretty similar and video. Different beat, as Taste is more hard rock and grittier. Slight change in the lyrics.

Rory Gallagher
CATFISH (TASTE)
Taste - 1969

Well I wish I was a catfish,
Swimming in the deep blue sea.
All you pretty womens,
Fishing after me,
Fishing after me.
Well, I went down to my baby's house,
And I sat down on the steps.
She said, "Come on in and have me,
My old man just left,
Just now left".

Well, there's two trains a runnin',
And there's not one, goin' my way.
One runs at midnight,
Other just for day.
Other just for day.
Other just for day.
Other just for day.
Other just for day.

Hey..........

Well, she's long,
And she's so tall,
Well, she shakes,
Like a willow tree.

They say she's no good,
She's alright with me.
Right with me.
Right with me.
Right with me.
Right with me.

Well I wish I was a catfish,
Swimming in the deep blue sea.
All you pretty women,
Swimmin' after me,
Swimmin' after me.

I wish I was your catfish.

Robert Petway was a blues musician who only recorded 16 sings! Here is the wiki link:-
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Petway
I believe he may wrote the original Catfish Blues and then Muddy re-worked the lyrics. This can't be conclusively verified. Subrata.x
https://youtu.be/E9z7eCCRAtY

Robert Petway's Catfish lyrics:-

Well I laid down, down last night, well I tried to take my rest
Notion struck me last night, babe I, I believe I take a stroll out, out west
Take a stroll out, out west, take a stroll out, out west
Take a stroll out west, take a stroll out west

What if I were a catfish, mama?
I said, swimmin’ deep down in, deep blue sea
Have these gals now, sweet mama, settin’ out
Settin’ out hooks for, for me, settin’ out hook for, for me
Settin’ out hook for, for me, settin’ out hook for me
Settin’ out hook for me, settin’ out hook for me

Well I went down, yeah, down to the church house, yes
Well I called on me to pray
Fell on my knees, now mama, I didn’t know, Lord
Not a word to, to say, not a word to, to say, not a word to
Not a word to, not a word to say, not a word to say, not a word to say

Play ‘em, man, play ‘em a long time

I’m gonna write, write me a letter baby, I’m gonna write it just to see
See my babe, my baby who she’s thinkin’ of
Little ol’ thing on, on me, little ol’ thing on, on me, little ol’ thing on, on me
Little ol’ thing on me, little ol’ thing on me, a little thing on me

Jimmy Hendrix version and lyrics:-
JIMI HENDRIX LYRICS
 Play and Win 
"Catfish Blues"

Well I wish I was a catfish,
Swimming in, lord, the deep blue sea.
I'd have a, all you pretty women,
fishin' after me, fishin' after me,
fishin' after me. Yeah.
Ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah.

When I went down, my girlfriends house.
And I sat down, lord, on her front step.
And she said a, come in now Jimi.
My husband just now left, just now left.
Ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah.

Well there's two, two trains runnin',
but there's not one, lord, that's goin' my way.
You know there's a one train runnin' at midnight.
Other one leave just for a day,
leave just for a day.
Ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah, ohh yeah.
