Buddie Brown Blues (Rolling Time)

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

Captain rung the bell this morning, just at the break of day
Captain rung the bell this morning, just at the break of day
Said now it's time for you to go rolling, buddy why don't you be on your way

Mama you can cook my breakfast, great God don't you burn my bread
Mama you can cook my breakfast, great God don't you burn my bread
Do and I'm going to take my black hand razor, I'm going to cut you on your doggone head

Now my captain done called me, Lord and I got to go
Now my captain done called me, Lord and I got to go
Because he's on his old black stallion, and he's riding from door to door

Now I will be so glad, when my payday comes
Now I will be so glad, when my payday comes
Says I'm getting so tired mama, rolling from sun to sun

Now I'm going to get up in the morning, do just like old Buddy Brown
Now I'm going to get up in the morning, do just like old Buddy Brown
Says I'm going to eat my breakfast, please and lay back down
