Shouting Baby Blues

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

I know my baby, she's gon' jump and shout
I know my baby, she's gwon' jump and shout
When that train rolls up and I come walkin' out

I wouldn't have a rooster if, he won't crow for day
I wouldn't have a rooster if, he won't crow for day
And I wouldn't have a hen, wouldn't cackle when she lay

Spoken: Play that thing, Mr. Clifford! Y' know we're a long way from home--got to play it or walk back home

I wouldn't have a cook, wouldn't cook three meals a day
I wouldn't have a cook, wouldn't cook three meals a day
I wouldn't have a woman if she couldn't do what I say

Haven't seen her at the station, ain't seen her out on the road
Haven't seen her at the station, ain't seen her out on the road
And I'm sittin' here wonderin', "Will a matchbox hold my clothes?"

When I leave town, I'll leave somebody cryin'
Oh, leave somebody cryin'
Oh, hollerin' and a-screamin', "Where that long tall man of mine?"
