​Honey Blues

This song is by Funny Papa Smith and appears on the compilation album The Original Howling Wolf, 1930-1931 (1972).

Spoken: This is the gal I'm talkin' about. I cain't beat her

Come kiss me honey before I go, little, listen honey
Come kiss me honey before I go, little, listen honey
Come and kiss me honey before I go, I'm gonna take a ride on the T & O
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'

(Now) Goodbye honey if you call that gone, honey
(Now) Goodbye honey if you call that gone, honey
Goodbye honey if you call that gone, I'm gonna take a ride in my high brown's arms
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'

Me and my baby don't get along so well, honey
Me and my baby don't get along so well, honey
Me and my baby we don't get along so well, she ain't work and have a chance to raise so much hell
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'

Now the prettiest girl that I ever seen, honey
Now the prettiest girl that I ever seen, honey
You know the prettiest girl that I ever seen was standin' on Franks Streets in New Orlean
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'

Well, You know it's often said and I done found out, listen, honey
Well, You know it's often said and I done found out, listen, honey
You know it's often said and I've done found out I ain't but one thing women crazy 'bout
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'

Monkey got a tail cut off on the street car line, honey
Didn't think about his tail until I started twistin' mine, honey
Run back to the track, laid his head on a rail and lose his head 'bout a little piece of tail
Oh sail, oh sailed away, hon'
