American Ballads and Folk Songs
Come de big Kate Adam wid headlight turn down de stream, An3 her sidewheel knocking "Great-God-I-been-redeemed."
Ef I feels tomorrow like I feels today,
Stan' right here an' look ten-thousand miles away.
My mother tol' me when I was a chiP,
'Bout de mens an' whisky would kill me after while.
Ef I gets drunk, wonder who's gwine carry me home, Ef I gets drunk, wonder who's gwine carry me home.
I used to love you, but, oh, God damn you, now, I used to love you, but, oh, God damn you, now.
De worry blues ain' nothin' but de heart disease, De worry blues ain' nothin' but de heart disease,
Jes' as soon as de freight train make up in de yard, Some poor woman got an achin' heart.
ToP my mother not to weep an' mo'nó I do de bes' I can, kase Ise a woman grown.
I flag de train an' it keep on easin' by, I fold my arms, I hang my head an' cry.
When my heart struck sorrow, de tears come rollin' down When my heart struck sorrow, tears come rollin' down.
Worry now an' I won' be worry long, Take a married woman to sing de worry song.
Ef I leave here walkin', it's chances I might ride, Ef I leave here walkin', it's chances I might ride.
