​Farewell to You Baby

This song is by Carl Martin and appears on the compilation Carolina Blues (1998).

I'm leavin' you, baby, just because you won't be true
I'm leavin' you, baby, just because you won't be true
Lord, you don't love me, after all I've done for you

You know, I worked hard all winter, when the snow was on the ground
You know, I worked hard all winter, when the snow was on the ground
You mistreated me then, baby, still I wouldn't throw you down

You made mistakes, baby, after you made your vow
You made mistakes, baby, after you made your vow
But your mistake-making is all over now

You're goin' to miss your daddy, some old lonesome day
And you're going to be sorry, you did me this way
You're gonna miss me some old lonesome day
And you goin' to be sorry that you did me this a-way

Now, I'm leavin' you, baby, with my clothes in my hand
Farewell to you, baby, get yourself a monkey man
Now, I'm leavin', with my clothes in my hand
Farewell to you, get yourself a monkey man
