Milk Cow Blues

This song is by Doc Watson and appears on the album Third Generation Blues (1999) and on the album Doc Watson at Gerdes Folk City (2001).

Well, I woke up this mornin' looked out my door
I thought I'd hear that milk cow, I can tell the way she lore
If you see my milk cow, please drive her on home
Ain't had no milk and butter, woo, since that cow got gone

Now you've gotta treat me right, day by day
Get out that little prayer book, get on your knees and pray
'Cause you're gonna need, yes, you're gonna need my help someday
Yeah, you're gonna be sorry you went and treated me this way

Well, good evenin', don't that sun look good goin' down?
Yeah, good evenin', don't that sun look good goin' down?
And don't your bed look lonesome
When your sweet women, she hang around?

Now I've tried everythin' baby, to get along with you
Now I'm gonna tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna stop cryin', gonna leave you alone
If you don't believe I'm leavin', you can count the days I'm gone
You won't see, oh, you ain't gon' see my face no more

You just gonna be wonderin'
Oh, where in this world that I'm gone
