​Jealous Hearted Blues

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: Ha, ha, ha! I hate to tell you, mama, but I'm sure here

You can have my money, all I own, but, God, please leave my gal alone
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, I'm jealous as I can't sleep

I got a range in my kitchen, bakes nice and brown, all I need's someone to turn my damper down
'Cause I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

It take a rockin' chair to rock, a rubber ball to roll, takes the gal I love, satisfy my soul
You know I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

I know the mens don't like me 'cause I speaks my mind, all the women crazy 'bout me 'cause I takes my time
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

I left my wife and baby settin' on the doorstep cryin', I got a house full of chillun, there ain't nary one mine
Oh, I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

I says I got love like I have it in your home, I can keep it turned off or I can turn it on
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

Says, hello Central, give me two-three-nine, what takes to get at these hips of mine
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

Ah some folks say them blues ain't bad, that must not've been, said, them blues I had
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

I says, I can't help, mama, what you do, you can tell the world I got those jealous-hearted blues
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep

I says, stop still, mama, let me give you my egvice, If I catch you with a man it's gonna be too tight
Oh I'm jealous, jealous, jealous-hearted, see?
So jealous, jealous as I can't sleep
