​Going Away Blues

This song is by Lottie Kimbrough and appears on the compilation The Country Girls! 1927-1935 (1964) and on the compilation album Wayward Girl Blues (2015).

I'm going away, it won't be long, I know you'll miss me from singing this lonesome song
I'm goin' away, it won't be long
And then you know you must have done me wrong

My daddy got ways like a baby child, those doggone ways are driving me wild
Those doggone ways are drivin' me wild
And that is why you never see poor Lottie smile

My heart aches so, I can't be satisfied, I believe I'll take a train and ride
I believe I'll take a train and ride
'Cause I miss my cruel daddy from my side

I've got Cadillac ways, Hudson Super ideas, I can't see what brought me here
I can't see what brought me here
It must have been this new Kans' City beer

I'm lame and blind, can't hardly see, my doggone daddy turned his back on me
'Cause I'm lame, I can't hardly see
I ain't got nobody to really comfort me
