Squabblin' Blues

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

My baby done quit me, talk's all over, I say, town
Baby done quit me, talk's all over town
And I'm too good a man for to let that talk go 'round

Take the shoes I bought her, bare foots on the, I say, ground
Shoes I bought her, put her bare foots on the ground
And these big Jack Frosts, said, it sure gwanna tear you down

Now, mister, mister, please to spare my, I mean, life
Mister, mister, please to spare my life
I got four little chillen, I got one little bald-head wife

Now, if I should die, state of Arkan, I said, sas
'F I should die in the state of Arkansas
I want you to send my body home to my mother-in-law

Said if she don't want it, say, give it to my Ma
Said if my Ma don't want it, say, give it to my Pa
Said if my Pa don't want it, say, give it to Aunt Mary Lee
Said, an' if Aunt Mary don't want it, say, give it to my used-to-be
Said, if she don't want it, say, cast it in the sea
Maybe these women in Greenville'll stop squabblin' over me

Sayin', I won't be worried with these blues no, I say, more
Won't be worried, with these blues no more
Said, it's train time now, said, I reckon I better go
