​Mojoe 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.

Oh, the mojoe blues, mama, crawlin' 'cross the floor
Oh, these mojoe blues, mama, crawlin' 'cross the floor
Some hard-luck rascal done told me I ain't here no more

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

Oh, she went to the hoodoo, she went there all alone
She went to the hoodoo, she went there all alone
'Cause every time I leave her, I have to hurry back home

Says, I love you, sweet mama, but I sure ain' no fool about you
Says, I love you, sweet mama, but I ain't no fool about you
How I can get another kidgal, just like I got you

When I leave here you can pin crepe on my door
When I leave here you can pin crepe over my door
Said, I won't be dead, just ain't comin' here no more

Some people tell me, honey them blues ain't bad
Oh, some people tell me, honey, them blues ain't bad
That must not been them low-down things I've had

Recorded:

1927
