Honey, Won't You Allow Me One More Chance?

This song is by Henry Thomas and appears on the compilation album Ragtime Texas (1974).

I went home last night, the moon was shinin' bright
Rakin' feelin' dizzy 'bout my head
Well, I rapped on the door; I heard my baby roar
"Honey, I'm going to bed"
"Get up and let me in; a wonder I still stand"
"You know you haven't treated me right
I paid all this rent; you haven't got a cent
You have to hunt you a new home tonight"

Honey allow me a one more chance
I ought'a well've treated you right
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I won't stay out all night
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I'll take you to the ball 'n France
A one kind favor I ask of you
Jus' allow me just a one more chance

Well then this 'bimbim' let-a me in, I set down beside of her bed
Says "honey dear, do you have some beer?" she shook her head and said
"Well it weren't no wonder, you been a-cuttin' a figure
You know you haven't treated me right
I paid all this rent; you haven't got a cent
You have to hunt you a new home tonight"

Honey allow me a one more chance
I ought'a well've treated you right
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I won't stay out all night
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I'll take you to the ball 'n France
Just a one kind favor I ask of you
Jus' allow me a one more chance

Honey allow me a one more chance
I ought'a well've a treated you right
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I won't stay out all night
Honey won't you allow me a one more chance
I'll take you to the ball 'n France
Just a one kind favor I ask of you
Jus' allow me just a one more chance

"Yes, these blues, I don't know, keep on chancin' me
Don't let me fall, I've got no dough, 'ver cryin' at your door"
"Well it tain't use you cryin' 'tall, I've got the chance that you ever had"
"I ain't gone one, I don't know, just allow me just a one more chance"
