​Charmin' Betsy

This song is by Henry Thomas and appears on the split compilation album Texas Blues: Early Blues Masters From the Lone Star State (2004) by various artists.

I'm going around the mountain charming Betsy
Going around the mountain to leave If I never see you no more
Do Lord remember me The first time I see charming Betsy
She want everything that she see Last time I seen charming Betsy
She's wearing the ball and chain
I'm going around the mountain charming Betsy
Going around the mountain to leave If I never see you no more
Do Lord remember me
I'm going around the mountain charming Betsy
Going around the mountain to leave If I never see you no more
Do Lord remember me I went down to Huntsville town
I did not go to stay I just got there to do time
To wear that ball and chain
I'm going around the mountain charming Betsy
Going around the mountain to leave If I never see you no more
Do Lord remember me Yellow gal rides in an automobile
Brown skin do the same Black gal rides in an old airship
But she riding just the same

I'm going around the mountain charming Betsy
Going around the mountain to leave If I never see you no more
Do Lord remember me
