Hesitation Blues

This song is by Ralph McTell and appears on the album Eight Frames A Second (1968).

Got my hesitation stockings, hesitation shoes,
Lord almighty got them hesitation blues.
And tell me how long, oh, must I have to wait?
Can I get you now, oh no, must I hesitate.

A nickel is a nickel, and a dime is a dime,
I got a house full of kids, one of them must be mine.
Oh how long, must I have to wait?
Can I get you now, oh no, must I hesitate.

And I'm standing on the corner with a dollar in my hand,
Looking for a woman who's looking for a man
How long, Good God must I wait?
Can I get you now, oh no, must I hesitate.

Never been to heaven, but I've been told,
Old Saint Peter knows how to jelly-roll,
How long, must I have to wait?
Can I get you now, oh no, must I hesitate.

Hesitation, got my hesitation,
Lord almighty got my hesitation.
How long, must I have to...
Can I..., oh no, must I hesitate.

Standing on the corner with a dollar in my hand,
Looking for a woman who's looking for a man
How long, Good God must I wait?
Can I get you now, oh no, must I hesitate.

Hesitation Blues.
