​House Top Blues

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

Gonna climb on some housetops, gonna roll down to the ground
Gonna climb on some housetops, gonna roll down to the ground
'Cause my gal done quit me and she don't 'low me in town

I got a evil-hearted mama, just as wicked as she can be
Oh, just as wicked as she can be
And ain't a day pass, that she don't put that thing on me

Spoken:Play that thing, Mr. Clifford! Play 'em hard, boy! Folks, just listen at that boy

She got a .38-40, just as long as my right arm
She got a .38-40, long as my right arm
She says she bought it especially for to keep her man at home

I'm leavin' you, baby, kill you if I die
Oh, kill me if I die
I mean I'm leavin', and I don't mean good-bye
