Grief Will Kill You

This song is by Little Buddy Doyle and appears on the split compilation album Memphis Harp and Jug Blowers 1927-1939 (2009) by Minnie Wallace, Jed Davenport and Little Buddy Doyle.

Lord, grief will kill you, it will get you down to skin and bones
Lord, grief will kill you, it will get you down to skin and bones
And I said, no broad will be advertisin', Lord, after you are dead and gone

I once grieved so hard, until I'd wake up weepin' in my sleep
I once grieved so hard, until I'd wake up weepin' in my sleep
But after you continue this life, boys, you'll be missin' down in some graveyard deep

Women hollerin' 'bout nowadays they don't love nobody, don't worry about the man behind they left
Women hollerin' nowadays they don't love nobody, and don't worry about the man behind they left
Boys, you better watch them women, because they be strippin' it up between themself
