Louise, Louise Blues

This song is by Johnnie Temple and appears on the compilation Out Came the Blues (1964) and on the album Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Volume 1 (1935-1938) (1994).

Louise is the sweetest gal I know
Louise is the sweetest gal I know
She made walk from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico

Now, look-a-here, Louise, what you tryin' to do?
You tryin' to give some man my lovin', and me too, now
You know, Louise, baby, that will never do
Now, you know you can't love me and love some other man, too

Louise, I believe somebody, baby, is fishin' in my pond
They catchin' all my perches, grindin' up their bones
Louise, baby, whyn't you hurry home?
I ain't had no lovin', oh, since Louise been gone

Louise, you know you got ways like a rattlesnake in his coil
Ev'y time you go to lovin', I swear it's out of this world
Louise, baby, whyn't you hurry home?
I ain't had no lovin' since my Louise been gone

Now Louise, the big boat is up the river, on a bank of sand
If she don't strike deep water, I swear she'll never land
Louise is the sweetest gal I know
She made me walk from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico
