I'm a 'fore-day rider mama, riding all night long
I'm a 'fore-day rider mama, riding all night long
Anywhere I come mama, I sing my worried song
Now I'm going to leave you mama, we can't get along
Now I'm going to leave you mama, we can't get along
Going to let you go mama, and sing my worried song

I won't carry nobody mama, I'm riding by myself
I won't carry nobody mama, I'm riding by myself
Because the 'fore-day blues, don't worry nobody else

And I rode to make you happy baby, rode all night and day
And I rode to make you happy baby, rode all night and day
You brought me these blues mama, seems like they're going to stay
