​Kind Babe Blues

This song is by James "Stump" Johnson.

I've been as nice and kind as I intend to be
I've been as nice and kind as I intend to be
You won't find nobody else, babe, gon' be this sweet like me

I'm leaving you now, babe, and your worryin' won't make me blue
I'm leaving you now, babe, and your worryin' won't make me blue
'Cause I found somebody else, babe, can love me like you do

I left my Mother, babe, why can't I leave you?
I left my Mother, babe, why can't I leave you?
You've caused me to do things my Mother would not do

Ah, treat me mean, baby, I'll do anything you want me to do
Treat me mean, babe, I'll do anything you want me to do
Someday you'll need me to laugh and talk with you

Oh, babe, you don't know my mind
Oh, babe, no, you don't know my mind
I'm laughin', baby, but I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'
