​Texas Blues

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Country Blues (2002).

I was raised in Texas, schooled in Tennessee
I was raised in Texas, schooled in Tennessee
I won't let you woman make a fool out of me

Late Last winter when it was chillin' cold
Late Last winter when it was chillin' cold
My woman put me out didn't have nowhere to go

I didn't have no money, my shoes had done worn thin
I didn't have no money, my shoes had done worn thin
I didn't have a decent pair of pants to go to Sunday school in

That's all right things about to come my way
That's all right things about to come my way
Got change in my pocket, change of clothes every day

Take me back baby I'll tell you what I'll do
Take me back baby I'll tell you what I'll do
I'll steal and beg, baby bring it home to you

She looks and me, she give me one sweet smile
She looks and me, she give me one sweet smile
I'll take you back for your low down dirty lie

Ooh-eee I feel all right today
Ooh-eee I feel all right today
My woman come back says she's going to stay

One of these days baby and it won't be long
One of these days baby I'm afraid it won't be long
You gonna call me baby, yes and I'll be gone

Mama told me when I was a child
Mama told me when I was a child
Son Whiskey and women gonna kill you after awhile

Good bye if I don't see you no more
Good bye baby if I don't see you no more
Remember my footprints tramping around your door
