​New How Long How Long Blues, Part 2

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 3 (1930-1932) (1992).

I'm going to the country, put my watch in pawn
I'm going to the country, put my watch in pawn
I don't want it to tell me, that you've been gone

I had some tough luck lately, I got locked up in jail
I had some tough luck lately, I got locked up in jail
I sat and called you baby, to come and go my bail

I'm going down to Georgia, then up to Tennessee
I'm going down to Georgia, then up to Tennessee
So look me over baby, this is the last you'll see of me

The last time I tried to love you, you were so very cold
The last time I tried to love you, you were so very cold
I thought that I was standing, holding the North Pole

I can look and see the greenback, growing on that hill
I can look and see the greenback, growing on that hill
But I ain't seen the greenback, on a dollar bill

I haven't any money, for a ticket on the train
I haven't any money, for a ticket on the train
But I will ride the rods baby, to be with you again
