Poor Man Blues

This song is by Henry Townsend and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999) and on the album Mule's Blues (2015).

And it's never mind, never mind, babe, I got my doggone eyes on you
And it's never mind, never mind, baby, got my doggone eyes on you
And some old day, pretty babe, do like I want you to do

When I was sick and down you drove me from your door
I was sick and down, baby, drove me from your door
Now, you know that I was a poor man, sleeping out in the ice and snow

And, baby, I'm gonna see you when you, babe, do something, I swear, that's wrong
See you, baby, when you do something I swear is wrong
When you mistreat me, babe, I'm gonna send your plea back home

That's all right for you, babe, I am gwon pawn my watch and ring
That's all right, babe, pawn my watch and ring
I done give you my money, I can give you most anything

Recorded:

1929
