Barefoot Bill's Hard Luck Blues

This song is by Ed Bell and appears on the compilation album Ed Bell "Mamlish Blues" (1927-1930) (1992).

Baby, I been workin' all this blasted year
Baby, I been workin', all this blasted year
I want to go home, ain't got no shoes to wear

But the times so hard, can't get no work to do
Times so hard, can't get no work to do
And my hard luck, mama, because I ain't got no shoes

I'm gwanna set right down, hang my head and cry
I'm gwanna set right down, hang my head and cry
I feel just like I could lay right down and die

Sugar, I will never be contented chere
Sugar, I will never be contented chere
I am stone barefooted, ain't got no shoes to wear

My coat all busted, my pants all full of holes
My coat done busted, my pants all full of holes
Barefooted, hungry and raggedy, doggone my hard luck soul
