Memory of Sonny Boy

This song is by Forrest City Joe and appears…

Now I was standin' down on the corner, Man, I overheard the words Lacey Belle was sayin'
Now you know I was standing down on the corner, While I overheard the words Lacey Belle was sayin'
She said now you know I'm in a worl of trouble, Lord I ain't got no man

Now you know Sonny Boy told me, Sonny Boy told me before he died
Now you know Sonny Boy told me, Sonny Boy told me before he died
He said, Joe you know after I'm gone, Man, I want you to play the blues awhile

I said yeah

Now you know the sun was down, Lord you know I heard the poor girl cryin'
Now you know the sun was down, Lord you know I heard the poor girl cryin'
Lord, she say, I ain't got nothin' but the blues, You know I'm gonna miss that little man of mine

So long, so long, Man, I ain't got nothing more to say
So long, so long, Man, I ain't got nothing more to say
Now you know I ain't got nothin' but the blues, ever since poor Sonny Boy been dead

Recorded:

1949
