What's The Matter Blues

This song is by Frank Stokes and appears on the compilation album The Victor Recordings (1928-1929) (1990) and on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

Oh now I wonder what's the matter, I can't rest at night
A good woman that I'm loving, done took my appetite

And she quit me she left me, to sing this song
You never miss your friend, till you caught your train and gone

And I'm going downtown, going to stay right there till fall
Don't get the gal I want, I don't want no girl at all

Say you talk about Sally, talk about Sally Lou
Well the woman that I'm crazy about, she knows just what to do

What's the matter now baby, that I could not treat you kind
You give me a bad‑luck deal, kept something on my mind

Recorded:

1928
