American Ballads and Folk Songs
Now my ap'on's up to my chin,
You pass my do' an' you won' come in,
Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
Ef I had listened to whut my mama said, I'd be at home in my mama's bed. Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
WOMAN BLUE
"Great Gawd, I'm feelin' bad! Am* got de man I thought I had."
—From The American Songbag.
An eighteen-year-old black girl, in prison for murder, sang the tune and the first stanza of these blues.
I know you, rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone, I know you, rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone, Gonna miss yo' PI mama, baby, f'um rollin5 in yo' arms,
.[ 19.6 ]
