​Jim Jackson's Kansas City Blues Pt. 2

This song is by Jim Jackson and appears on the compilation album Jim Jackson Vol. 1 (1927-1928) (1992).

I was first on Main Street, started down Beale
I lookin' for that woman they call Lucille
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you

The Mississippi River so long, deep and wide
I can see my good girl standin' on the other side
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you

I left off of Beale Street, started down Vance
I was lookin' for the woman they call Lizzie Mance
She done moved to Kansas City, she done moved to Kansas City
She done moved, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you

If you don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree
I ain't after your woman, man, she's after me
We gon' move to Kansas City, we gon' move to Kansas City
We gon' move, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you

I got one girl in Texas and two in Tennessee
But the womens here in this town, Lord, takes on over me
We gon' move to Kansas City, I'm gon' move to Kansas City
We gon' move, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you

I'm gonna tell all you men what we musn't do
Don't ever love one woman like she says she loves you
She'll call you honey, she'll call you pie
And she'll let things get a-loose, Lord, on the sly
Then she'll move to Kansas City, then she'll move to Kansas City
Then she'll move, baby, honey, where they don't 'low you
