​Savannah Blues

This song is by Malcolm Holcombe and appears on the album Pitiful Blues (2014).

It 's cool down in savannah
Like the last time I know
It's cool down in savannah
Like the last time I know
And I feel lost and hurtin'
And thirsty like befo'

People don't see me
When I look 'em in the eye
Nobody they don't see me
When I look 'em straight up in the eye
They just stare behind my back
They don't care 'bout if I die

It's rainin' in savannah
My bones achin' all the time
Pourin' rain down in savannah
My poor ol bones achin' all the time
Undertaker's mean and ugly
He's a hummin' in the pines

Now it's a crazy way o' dyin'
Sinkin' low in my head
It's a crazy way o' dyin'
Sinkin' low down in my head
You see I'm deep below the sunshine
This here's a cold and lonely bed

Sure is crowded in the ground
Ain't nobody knows my name
Way crowded here in the ground
Ain't nobody knows my name
Ev'ry body's in a box
Ev'rybody looks the same

That yeller fever's awful bad
I got no money for a bell
That yeller fever's awful bad
And iaint got no money for a bell
I been buried still alive
Ain't nobody gonna tell
