​Cold Country Blues

This song is by Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation album Buddy Moss Vol. 1 1933 (1992).

Say, when the snow started to fallin', and the north wind began to blow
Say, when the snow started to fallin', and the north wind began to blow
Said, I was all outdoors, and didn't have no winter clothes

In the summer I had money, but this winter I didn't have a lousy dime
Said, in the summer I had money, but this winter I didn't have a lousy dime
And I'm goin' back south, where the weather suits these clothes of mine

Said, my clothes ain't sufficient, and I'm bound to catch T.B
Said, my clothes ain't sufficient, and I'm bound to catch T.B
And if my woman really loved me, she would send for poor me
(Spoken: Ah it's bad to be cold, boy, 'specially in the wintertime)

Some people say they're happy, but they don't even know
Some people say they are happy, but they don't even know
They haven't had any hard luck or had to sleep in the rain and snow

Now they talks about money, but I haven't got none
Said, now they talks about money, but I haven't got none
But I'm so glad, that I ain't the only one
