Two Little Tommie Blues

This song is by Papa Harvey Hull & Long "Cleeve" Reed and appears on the compilation The Songster Tradition: 1927-1935 (1991).

Got two little toneys, can't hardly tell 'em apart
Got two little toneys, can't hardly tell 'em apart
One is my lover, the other 'un is my heart

Got two little toneys, they is black and brown
Got two little toneys, they is black and brown
One lives in the country, the other 'un lives in town

When you see me comin', put your man outdoors
When you see me comin', put your man outdoors
Well, I ain't no stranger, I been here before

When you see me comin', bake your biscuits brown
When you see me comin', bake your biscuits brown
Put your meat in the cupboard, turn your damper down

When you see me leaving, hang your head and cry
When you see me leavin', hang your head and cry
When you see me leaving, hang your head and cry

Got a mind to ramble, ain't gon settle down
Got a mind to ramble, ain't gon settle down
Gonna move to the city, carry these girls on down

Can you tell me how far, Jackson to McComb?
