​Original Blues

This song is by Bayless Rose and appears on the compilation Ragtime Blues Guitar (1927-1930) (1994).

Said, I didn't come here, baby, to take nobody's brown
Said, I didn't come here, honey, take nobody's brown
I'm just a poor man, babe, I just walked in your town

From ashes from ashes, mama, from dust to dust
From ashes from ashes, woman, from dust to dust
Just show me a woman any poor man can trust

Says, I laid and talked with my brown all night long
Says, I laid and talked to my woman all night long
Tryin' to teach that woman, teach her right from wrong

Mississippi River, woman, is deep and wide
Mississippi River (guitar fills in) deep and wide
Couldn't see my brownie from this other side

Said, go on, woman, look what you've done done
Said, run here, woman, look what you've done done
Said, run here, woman, look what you've done done
You made me love you, now your man done come

She's your and she's mine, she's someone else's, too
She's your and she's mine, she's someone else's, too
She's your and she's mine, she's someone else's, too
Just any woman, Good Lord, she will do
