You wonder why I'm grievin' and feelin' blue?
All I do is moan and cry
With me you'd be in sympathy if you only knew
And here's the reason why:
Have you heard what that mean old judge has done to me?
He told the jury not to let my man go free
There I stood with my heart so full of misery
He must die on the gallows, that was the court's decree
I walked the floor until his time was through
The judge he said there's nothin' you can do
He must die on the gallows, by his neck be hung
He must pay with his life when that there trap is sprung
He refused folks to talk until it was too late
He gave his life to satisfy the State
When they pull the black cap over my daddy's face
Lord I beg the sheriff to let me take his place
Now everyday I seem to see that news
I cry to hide my tears but what's the use?
Thirteen steps with his lovin' arms bound to his side
With a smile on his face that's how my daddy died

  • Blues Aint Nothin Else But...
    "The man that keeps you worried, and always cryin'
    She can't get when she want him, gotta catch him when she can
    Just like consumption, it kills you by degrees
    Cryin' about her lover, another woman took him away..."
  • Booze Crazy Man Blues
    "I love you sweet papa, please let your mama stay
    You know I've stuck with you, sweet daddy through thick and thin
    Just for daddy to have, some place to lay his weary head
    Your goin' to let bad whiskey carry you to your grave

  • Broadcasting Blues
    "Tune in on your radio, and find my man for me
    Please call him for me, move my heart this heavy load
    Cause I'll give the world, to get him back to me
    Announce to the world, I've got those broadcasting blues

  • Chicago Monkey Man Blues
    "I'm goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you
    Yes I'm goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you
    Cause there's nothin' on State Street, that a monkey man can do
    If monkey men were money, I'd be a Chicago millionaire..."
  • Coffin Blues
    "Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
    Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
    All day I stood by your coffin, tryin' to give my poor heart ease
    I rubbed my hands over your head and whispered in your ear..."
  • Death Letter Blues
    "I received a letter that my man was dyin'
    I received a letter that my man was dyin'
    I caught the first plane and went home flyin'
    When I got there the folks had gathered around..."
  • Fogyism
    "To hear a hoot owl holler, someone is surely dyin'
    And if a black cat crosses them, they'll break right down in tears
    Your man is sure to leave you, and never return no more
    That's a true sign he's got someone else bakin' his jelly roll

  • Four Day Creep
    "When you lose your money don't lose your mind
    When you lose your money don't lose your mind
    When you lose your good man please don't mess with mine
    And I'm gonna buy me a bulldog to watch my man while he sleeps..."
