​Bessie's Moan

This song is by Bessie Tucker and appears on the compilation album Bessie Tucker (1928-1929) (2005).

Hey, hey hey hey hey
Because the man I'm loving, treats me so unkind

I woke up this morning, feeling mighty bad
Oh, feeling mighty bad
I done lost my daddy, best man I ever had

It's your time now, be mine after a while
Oh, be mine after a while
You know that you hurt me, daddy because I seen you smile

My mama's dead, papa throwed me away from home
Oh, papa throwed me away from home
My man don't want me, that's why I weep and moan

If you don't want me, please don't dog me around
Oh, please don't dog me around
Just like you found me, you can put me down

Recorded:

29 Aug 1928; Memphis,TN
