I'm Going Away and Leave My Baby

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 1 (1928-1929) (1992).

Going to leave you, baby, 'cause you treated me wrong
And when I'm going, baby, I'll be singing this song
Going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and I don't mean maybe and I'm leaving, early in the morn

I'm going to leave you, baby, 'cause all you do is fight
And I've got another mama, what's a-treating me right
Going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and I don't mean maybe and I'm leaving, early in the morn

When you say I need you, you know it's a lie
'Cause I can find more women, than there's stars in the sky
Going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and I don't mean maybe and I'm leaving, early in the morn

Don't you start to crying, 'cause it won't do no good
I was a soft papa, but now I'm made of wood
Going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and leave my baby and I'm leaving, early in the morn

You said you loved me, baby, but you know it ain't so
I've got a cold mama, and I might as well go
Going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and I don't mean maybe and I'm leaving, early in the morn

Oncet I believed you, baby, when you were telling lies
I am through, baby, so say your last good-byes
I'm going away and leave my baby, away and leave my baby
Going away and I don't mean maybe and I'm leaving, early in the morn
