Tight Time Blues

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

Times is done got so tight, so I'm going to rob and steal
Times is done got so tight, so I'm going to rob and steal
It's done got so tight, a man can't get a decent meal

I ain't got no shoes, and I ain't got no clothes
I ain't got no shoes, and I ain't got no clothes
The house rent man, has done put my things outdoors

It was thundering out and lightning, oh Lord how it did rain
It was thundering out and lightning, oh Lord how it did rain
But somehow, I'm going to get even with that house rent man

I've done got evil, and I've done got mean
I've done got evil, and I've done got mean
And when I start to stealing, I'm going to pick the rounders clean
