​Shinin' Pistol

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 6 (1934-1935) (1992).

I'm going to get me a brand new shiny pistol, with a long shiny barrel
I'm going to get me a brand new shiny pistol, with a long shiny barrel
I'm going to ramble this town over, until I find my girl

I'm going to go to the station, and try to find her there
I'm going to go to the station, and try to find her there
And if the Lord has not got her, she's in this world somewhere

She left me with a head full of trouble, and a head full of misery
She left me with a head full of trouble, and a head full of misery
And now she's got me crying, baby please come back home to me

My mother told me, don't you weep don't you moan
My mother told me, don't you weep don't you moan
Because son there'll be women here, when you dead and gone

When I get through rambling, and looking this whole world through
When I get through rambling, and looking this whole world through
I won't be dead with trouble, you know I died to lose
