​Goin' to Leave You Blues

This song is by Big Boy Cleveland and appears on the compilation The Songster Tradition: 1927-1935 (1991).

That K&R arrives, pullin those coalers down
That K&R arrives and pullin those coalers down
That train arrives, ain't blowin' no coal in town
Post the job for another'un, pull my ticket off

I'm goin' away, to worry you off my mind
I'm goin' away, to worry you off my mind
I'm goin' away, to worry you off my mind
Keeps me worried, bothered all the time

Hate to see, ev'nin sun go down
I hate to see the ev'nin sun go down
Hate to see the ev'nin sun go down
Makes me feel that I'm on my last go 'round

Mama told me, papa told me, too
My mama told me, papa told me, too
My mama told me, papa told me, too
Don't you let yo woman, make a bad mouth outta you

I'm leavin' here, cryin' won't make me stay
I'm leavin' here cause, cryin' won't make me stay
I'm leavin' here cause, cryin' won't make me stay
The mo' you cry, the further I'm goin' away

Stranger round here, just fall outta his mind
Stranger round here, just fall outta his mind

Recorded:

1927
