​Mistreated Boy

This song is by Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation album Buddy Moss, Vol. 3 (1935-1941) (1992).

My mama, she's dead and my daddy he's a gamblin' man
Now my mama, she's dead and my daddy he's a gamblin' man
When I come home, he's always raisin' sand

I'm gonna write to my mama just to send me my railroad fare
I'm gonna write to my mama to send me my railroad fare
And if she don't send it I'm 'on walk the railroad there

My mama she dead and my daddy, he don't 'low me home
My mama, she dead and my daddy, he don't 'low me home
And I ain't got nobody to teach me right from wrong

Mmm, Lord Lord Lord Lordy Lord
Mmm, Lord Lord Lordy Lord
And the woman I love, she won't act right at all

I'm gonna tell my mama just as soon as I get home
I'm gonna tell my mama just as soon as I get home
How you women here in this town have treat her baby boy wrong
