​Hustler's Blues

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 5 (1934) (1992).

Whiskey is my habit, good women is all I crave
Whiskey is my habit, good women is all I crave
And I don't believe in two things, will carry me to my grave

I'm going to Louisiana, where I can drink and have my fun
I'm going to Louisiana, where I can drink and have my fun
I can't stay here much longer, because my time has just about come

When you see me leaving baby, don't you wear no black
When you see me leaving baby, don't you wear no black
You see your loving daddy, walking down some lonesome railroad track

When I was a hustler, I'm in my prime
When I was a hustler, I'm in my prime
I would drink good whiskey, and gamble all the time
