Lucinda Williams - Make Me A Pallet On The Floor Lyrics




Honey, make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Honey, make it down, make it soft and low
Then maybe my good gal she won't know

I'm goin' up the country through the sleedin' snow
Goin' up the country through the sleedin' snow
I'm goin' up the country through the sleedin' snow
Ain't no telling just how fur I'll go

I get my breakfast here and my dinner in Tennessee
Get my breakfast here and my dinner in Tennessee
I get my breakfast here and my dinner in Tennessee
I told you I's a-commin' soon, you'd better look for me

Honey, I can't lay down on your bed
You know that I can't lay down on your bed
Yes, you know that I can't lay down 'cross your pretty bed
'cause my good woman she might kill me dead

And don't you let my good gal catch you here
No don't you let my good gal catch you here
Doo, she might shoot you, cut and stump you too
Ain't no tellin' what o' she might do

Ooh, make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Honey, make it down, make it soft and low
Then maybe my good gal she won't know

Now the way I've been sleepin' my back and shoulders' tired
The way I've been sleepin' my back and shoulders' tired
The way I've been sleepin' my back and shoulders' tired
Thinking goin' turn over, tryin' sleepin' on my side

Ooh , make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Honey, make it down, make it soft and low
Then maybe my good gal she won't know
(Make that pallet, honey)

Lucinda Williams Make Me A Pallet On The Floor Comments
  1. Frank Correnti

    Basically my one of two faves. Other is done . by Molly Reeves.

  2. Frank Correnti

    I've followed Lucinda and seen her in an Arts/Poetry and Music Performance here in Pittsburgh at the renowned Pittsburgh International Poetry Forum. She has an album recalling some moments with her father, Miller Williams, a renowned poet and the performance included the two of them. What a jewel. It was gravel on some kind of road or tires on a gravel road, but she blended the vectors so beautifully that we love it!

  3. Trip2929

    This version is so underrated

  4. Brian D Kiernan

    hit and miss with lucinda (imho of course), but generally in love with her and this is a fantastic version of this tune

    robert donaldson

    Your opinion sucks.

    Frank Correnti

    I agree. We rarely hear this tune played up, usually it is along with the prevailing metaphor of loss and desperation, butr this is a delicious example of that other genre/display of rejuvenation that occurs. Love IT!!

  5. Sheila Bloom

    Great album.

  6. James McIntosh
