​Broke Man Blues

This song is by Kokomo Arnold and appears on the compilation album Kokomo Arnold Vol. 4 (1933-1934) (1991).

Well I dreamed last night now, that my old shack was falling down
Well I dreamed last night now, that my old shack was falling down
And when I woke up this morning, my poor head was going round and round

Now I'm going to be a robber and a cheater, I'm going to take that to be my game
Now I'm going to be a robber and a cheater, I'm going to take that to be my game
And when I make my black money, I'm going on back home to Mary Jane

Now when I was a schoolboy, I would not take no one's advice
Now when I was a schoolboy, I would not take no one's advice
Now I'm just a broke man, nobody seems to want to treat me right

Now my poor heart is aching, and I really don't know what to do
Now my poor heart is aching, and I really don't know what to do
Says I got a strong notion, coming right on back home to you

Now I'm going to close conversation, and I have no more to say
Now I'm going to close conversation, and I have no more to say
And a since I been a broke man, nobody seems to want to go my way
