Nehi Mamma Blues

This song is by Frank Stokes and appears on the compilation album The Victor Recordings (1928-1929) (1990).

When a man take the blues, he walk to the river and sit down
When a man take the blues, he walk to the river and sit down
If the blues get too heavy, he'll jump overboard and drown

'Cause a man take the blues, he walk to the river and sit down
Get's turned by a Nehi mama, and he turned right sure around
My mama wonders what's going on, mama since I left town

Now it's east and west, north and south
Why, the Nehi women have done turned me out
So they can Eagle Rock me, they can stop me
Upon the things that I used to do
I got the Nehi blues mama
Don't know what in the world to do

Ah, now it's T for Texas, T for Tennessee
Them is a-mighty bad letters for to stole away from me
'Cause she can Eagle Rock me, they can stop me
Upon the things that I used to do
I got the Nehi blues mama
Don't know what in the world to do

Now down on Third Street, the corner of Beale
Why, the Nehi women have got a terrible feel
'Cause they can Eagle Rock you, they can stop you
Upon the things that you used to do, I got the Nehi blues
Don't know what in the world to do

Now, papa got to singing, my folks got to crying
For Nehi women, stays on my mind
So they can Eagle Rock me, they can stop me
Upon the things that I used to do
I got the Nehi blues
Don't know what in the world to do

Now little batch of posies, laid on my door
The Nehi women keep me, everywhere I go
'Cause they can Eagle Rock me, they can stop me
Upon the things that I used to do
I got the Nehi blues mama
Don't know what in the world to do

I got the Nehi blues
Don't know what in the world to do
