As the Clock Struck Four

This song is by Casey Bill Weldon and appears on the compilation album Casey Bill Weldon Vol. 1 1935-1936 (1993).

As my baby woke me one morning, now the clock was strikin' four
My baby woke me one morning, now the clock was strikin' four
She said if you can't give me no money, Daddy I sure will have to go

And I walked the streets until my shoe soles got as thin as a dime
And I walked the streets until my shoe soles got as thin as a dime
Tryin' to find some money for my baby, but I can't find a lousy dime

I said if you call this leavin', your daddy wants you to take every rag
If you call this leavin', your daddy wants you to take every rag
I see your clothes hangin' round here when you're gone, It will make your daddy feel so bad

I found myself standing on the corner, oh by the curbin' stone
I found myself standing on the corner, and by the curbin' stone
I was lookin' for that little girl, but she done left me all alone

As I seen my baby, she was walkin' down the railroad tracks
As I seen my baby, she was walkin' down the railroad tracks
She said I'm goin' now daddy, but I sure God ain't comin' back
