​My Crime Blues

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

I got the blues for my baby, she got the blues for, I say, me
Blues for my baby, she got the blues for me
But I can't see my baby, and she can't see me

I'm gonna be condemned, I'm, early tomorrow, I say, morn
Gonna be condemned, early tomorrow morn
But I am not guilty 'cause I ain't done nobody wrong

My crime, my crime, I really can't under, I said, stand
My crime, my crime, I really can't understand
They got me 'scused of murder and I ain't never harmed a man

Baby, please come down there, for my trial, I say, day
Will you please come down on my trial day
So when I be condemned you can wipe my tears away

There's no need to cry, ain't no need to weep and moan
There's no need to cry, no need to weep and moan
Just try to get somebody to go on my bond

I think it's gwanna be weepin', I begin to, I said, moan
It's gwanna be weepin', I begin to moan
Sayin', I'm a poor boy here, I sure ain't got no home

The jury found me guilty, judge says, "Listen", I say, "here"
Jury found me guilty, the judge said, "Listen here
It ain't no fine for you, get ready for the electric chair"
