​My Well Is Dry

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

Says I never missed my water, not until my well went dry
Says I never missed my water, not until my well went dry
Says I never missed sweet Annie, not until she said goodbye

Hey Lord sweet mama, tell me when you're coming back again
Hey Lord sweet mama, tell me when you're coming back again
Says I ain't had none of your loving, Lord since God knows when

Now the mailman he passed, but he did not leave no news
Now the mailman he passed, but he did not leave no news
Says he left me standing here, with the doggone aching-heart blues

Well I ain't going to be no fool man, I'm going to hold up my head and walk
Well I ain't going to be no fool man, I'm going to hold up my head and walk
Says my woman get a chance to see me, but they all hear me when I talk

Says I holler in the morning, I begin to moan late at night
Says I holler in the morning, I begin to moan late at night
Says I got a hard-hearted woman, and she don't know how to treat me right
