Price was born in 1933. He formed his own group in 1949 in New Orleans and in 1952 was signed to Specialty Records in Los Angeles. "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" was his first hit, becoming an R&B number 1 in 1952, featuring Fats Domino on the piano. Price's career was interrupted by military service between 1954 and 1956, after which he set up his own record company before moving to ABC-Paramount, where he became a popular rock'n'roll artist with his first hit, "Stack-O-Lee" (a version of "Stagger Lee," also included in this list). After 1959 Price's popularity diminished, though he continued recording until 1976.

Oh, now lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, Miss Clawdy,
Girl, you sure look good to me.
Well, please don't excite me, baby,
Though it can't be me.

Because I give you all o' my money,
Girl, but you just won't treat me right.
You like to ball in the mornin',
Don't come back till at night.

I'm gonna tell, tell my mama,
Lawd, I swear to God, what you been doin' to me.
I'm gonna tell everybody that,
I'm down in misery.

[Instrumental break.]

Well, now lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, Miss Clawdy,
Lawd, I swear to God you look good to me.
You just wheelin' an' rockin', baby,
Just as fine as you can be.

Well, so bye, bye, bye, baby,
Girl, I won't be trouble no more.
Goodbye, Clawdy, oh darlin',
Down the road I'll go.
