Motherless Chile Blues

Play

If I mistreat you gal: I sure don't mean no harm
I'm a motherless child: And I don't know right from
Wrong

Please tell me pretty mama: Honey where you stayed last
Night
You didn't come home: Till the sun was shining bright

I have to go so far: To get my hambone boiled
These atlanta women: Going to let my hambone spoil

I done done more for you: Than your daddy ever done
I give you my jelly: He ain't give you none

When you see two women: Always running hand in hand
You can bet your bottom dollar: One's got the other
One's man

I'm going to the river: Get me a *dang* old rocking
Chair
If the blues overtake me: Going to rock on away from
Here
