Who Broke The Latch?

This song is by Bo Carter and appears on the compilation album Bo Carter Vol. 3 (1934-1936) (1991).

Now, who broke that latch? I don't know
Who broke that latch on my front do'?

I'm goin' to find out before I go
Who broke that latch on my front do'
I'm goin' to find, before I go
Who broke the latch on my do', oh baby
Who broke the latch on my do'

Now, old Uncle Tom, jelly rollin' king
Hump in his back come from shakin' that thing
Old Aunt Dinah she's long an' tall
Thinks she can shake it like a cannon ball
I'm goin' to find, before I go
Who broke the latch on my do', oh baby
Who broke the latch on my do'

Says, I woke up this mornin', half-past twelve
You know the cold wind was givin' me hell
Woke up this mornin' 'bout half-past four
Door flew open an' the wind begin ta' blow
I'm goin' to find, before I go
Who broke the latch on my do', oh baby
Who broke the latch on my do'

Now come along boys an' look me in my eyes
Don't come in here with none of your big lies
Ashes to ashes an' dust to dust
'Nother old so-an-so done hushed his fuss
I'm goin' to find, before I go
Who broke the latch on my do', oh baby
Who broke the latch on my do'

Recorded:

1935
