“I’m Ready” lyrics

“I’m Ready” (lyrics: Willie Dixon; music: James Moore), from “King King”

I’m ready, ready as anybody can be
I’m ready, ready as anybody can be
I’m ready for you, I hope that you’re ready for me

I got an axe-handle pistol on a graveyard frame*
Shootin’ tombstone bullets wearin’ balls and chains
I’m smokin’ TNT drinkin’ dynamite
I hope some screwball starts a fight

Cause I’m ready, I’m ready as anybody can be
I’m ready for you, I hope that you’re ready for me

(harp solo)

I been drinkin’ your gin like never before
I feel so good I want you to know
Just one more drink yes I wish that you would
Takes a whole lot of lovin’ to make me feel good

I’m ready, I’m ready as anybody can be
I’m ready for you, I hope that you’re ready for me

All you pretty little chicks with your long curly hair
I know that you think like I ain’t nowhere
Stop what you’re doing and baby come over here
I’ll prove to you baby that I ain’t no square

I’m ready, I’m ready as anybody can be
I’m ready for you, I hope that you’re ready for me

(harp solo)

* Original lyric is “frame”; Butler may be singing something else, possibly “train”
