Roberta Blues

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

Well, yond' come Roberta, got a hundred all in her hand
Well, yond' come Roberta, got a hundred all in her hand
She said, "Good morning, Judge, you know I've come to get my man"

Well, the judge turned around and he commenced to chewin' his cud
You know, the judge turned around, boys, and he commenced to chewin' his cud
He said, "A hundred, Roberta, won't do your man no good"

Well, they brought me coffee, oh man, they brought me tea
Well, they brought me coffee, don't you know, they brought me tea
Well, they brought me everything, oh man, but that jailhouse key

When I leave Roberta, well, she laid and cried all night
When I leave Roberta, well, she laid and cried all night
You know, I know that she love me, but I just can't treat her right
