​Head Cuttin' Blues

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

I believe to my soul, there's a black cat sleeping under my bed
I believe to my soul, there's a black cat sleeping under my bed
Every time I get drunk, my woman wants to cut my head

She keeps me running, ducking and dodging all night long
She keeps me running, ducking and dodging all night long
Every time I get drunk, I don't mean to treat nobody wrong

Now listen here mama, I ain't going to do it no more
Now listen here mama, I ain't going to do it no more
When I get full of my good whiskey, you got me running from door to door

Now I'm leaving you mama, Lord and it won't be long
Now I'm leaving you mama, Lord and it won't be long
Now if you don't believe I'm leaving, please count the days I'm gone

Now just as sure as a freight train, rolls up in the yard
Now just as sure as a freight train, rolls up in the yard
Says I'm going to go far, take two dollars to send me a postal card
