This song is by Joshua White and Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation album Buddy Moss, Vol. 3 (1935-1941) (1992) by ​Buddy Moss.

I don't want no cornbread, meat and black molasses
I don't want no cornbread, meat and black molasses
At suppertime, Lord, Lord, Lord, at suppertime

I'm gonna set down, have a little talk with my captain
I'm gonna set down, have a little talk with my captain
About my time, Lord, Lord, Lord, about my time

If I can only make June, July and August
If I can only make June, July and August
I'm goin' back home, Lord, Lord, Lord, I'm goin' back home (spoken: Aw, play it)

I got a letter, letter from my Mother this morning
I got a letter, letter from my Mother this morning
"Son, come home", Lord, Lord, Lord, "Son, come home"

I didn't have no, have no ready-made money
I didn't have no, have no ready-made money
I couldn't go home, Lord, Lord, Lord, I couldn't go home
