​Country Breakdown

This song is by Charley Lincoln and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by ​Charley Lincoln and ​Willie Baker.

Spoken:Lord, Lord, I'm gettin' drunk now, sure 'nough

I'm leavin' here, mama, cryin' won't make me stay
Lord, I'm leavin' here, mama, cryin' won't make me stay
Oh, the more you cry, babe, further I'm goin' away

Soon as I get sober, oh, make me drunk again
Soon as I get sober, oh, make me drunk again
Said, I'm gonna leave the chickens, said I'm goin' back to the hen

Did you ever wake up, 'twixt midnight and day?
Did you ever wake up, mama, 'twixt midnight and day?
Have your arm 'round your pillow where your good gal used to lay

I believe to my soul my brown's got a stingoree
Ohr, I believe to my soul, my brown's got a stingoree
When I woke up this mornin', says, she was stingin' poor me

Don't want no dollar, mama, sure can't use no half
Don't want no dollar, mama, I sure can't use no half
Say, I got a brown says, "I can't hear no laughs"

Recorded:

1927
