Hesitation Blues (Oh! Baby, Must I Hesitate?)

This song is by Jim Jackson and appears on the compilation album Jim Jackson Vol. 2 (1928-1930) (1992).

"Hello Central, what's the matter with your line?
I want to talk to that high brown of mine"
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

I'm going to the river with a rope and a rock
And the way you grieve me, I'm gonna jump over the dock
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Uh, can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

I got somethin' to tell you, and I know it ain't good news
'Cause a hesitatin' woman give me the hesitation blues
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

I'm go and tell the Sergeant and see the Chief Police
'Cause the women 'round here won't let me see no peace
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Uh, can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

I've got a girl in Memphis is all right
But the girl in Cincinnati is just too tight
Baby, how long will I have to wait
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

I got a girl in Cairo, loves me, I know
But the girl in Louisville is got the best gold
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Uh, can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

My Mother says I'm wicked, Daddy says I'm wild
I know I ain't good-lookin' but some woman's angel child
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate

I've sang you these verses and it didn't take long
If you want to hear any more, you'll have to buy this song
Tell me how long will I have to wait
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate
