Ray LaMontagne – Big Boned Woman


Oh good woman left the porch light on
Big boned Sally won’t do me no wrong
Now that’s a woman that I sure do love to see

Big boned Sally got the turkey on the table
Big boned Sally got the mashin’ that potato
Sweet cornbread, red ripe tomato, a bowl full of garden greens

Yes that’s my big boned woman, a big boned woman
A big boned woman got a big ol’ hold on to me, yes
Big boned woman, she’s gonna save my soul from ruin
My big boned woman got a whole lotta, whole lotta, whole lotta what I need

Big boned Sally in a long flanel dress
That’s the way that she can love me the best
She got big brown eyes put your poor heart to rest
But your soul that wanna dance and sing

Big boned Sally I love her so much
Sweet sugar smile and a honkey tonk touch
Oh good lord you got to find me a crutch
Because I feel a little weak in the knees

Yes that’s my big boned woman, a big boned woman
A big boned woman got a big ol’ hold on to me, yes
Big boned woman, she’s gonna save my soul from ruin
My big boned woman got a whole lotta, whole lotta, whole lotta what I need

Now hold on to me baby!
Feels good!
That’s right! That’s right!

Oh good woman left the porch light on
Big boned Sally won’t do me no wrong
Now that’s a woman that I sure do love to see

Big boned Sally got the turkey on the table
Big boned Sally got the mashin’ that potato
Sweet cornbread, red ripe tomato, a bowl full of garden greens

Yes that’s my big boned woman, a big boned woman
A big boned woman got a big ol’ hold on to me, yes
Big boned woman, she’s gonna save my soul from ruin
My big boned woman got a whole lotta, whole lotta, whole lotta what I need
My big boned woman got a whole lotta, whole lotta, whole lotta sympathy
