Sweet Man Blues

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.

Baby, I bought you shoes, I bought you clothes to wear
Even sent you to the beauty shop, baby, so you could have wavy hair
But now tell me who, baby, gonna be your sweet man when I'm gone
Baby, I don't see why that you want to treat your daddy wrong

Now, you know I did for you, baby, I even missed doin' for myself
Now you want to mistreat your sweet man for somebody else
But now tell me who, baby, gonna be your sweet man when I'm gone
Baby, I don't see why that you want to treat your daddy wrong

Now you know I was slippin', lookin' out for you, all through slim times and hard
I been even takin' bad treatment, baby, tryin' to do my part
But now tell me who, baby, gonna be your sweet man when I'm gone
Baby, I don't see why that you want to treat your daddy wrong

Now, baby, you know you don't even have to worry, baby, even about the date we made
You've got groceries in your kitchen, baby, house rent already paid
But now tell me who, baby, gonna be your sweet man when I'm gone
Baby, I don't see why that you want to treat your daddy wrong
