Dirty Deal Blues

This song is by Robert Wilkins and appears on the split split compilation album Complete Recordings in Chronological Order, 1928-1935 (1972).

Early one morning, baby, something was all on my mind
Early one morning, baby, something was all on my mind
Oh, I was thinkin' about my welfare, and I just couldn't keep from cryin'

Oh, cried one time, mama, your daddy ain't gonna cry no more
Oh, cried one time, mama, your daddy ain't gonna cry no more
Lord, I made up in my mind, pretty mama, honey, it's, Great God, let you go

Good-bye, pretty mama, oh baby, fare thee well
Good-bye, pretty mama, oh baby, fare thee well
Lord, I'm afraid to meet you in that other world somewhere

Oh baby, I'm so glad that this whole round world do know
Oh baby, I'm so glad that this whole round world do know
That every living creature, mmm, reap just what they sow

That's the reason why you hear me cryin', "Lord, please have mercy on me"
That's the reason why you hear me cryin', "Lord, please have mercy on me"
Because I don't want my woman, mmmm, reap no bad seed

That's the reason why I keep on tellin' her, papa tell her 'bout her dirty deeds
That's the reason why I keep on tellin' her, papa tell her 'bout her dirty deeds
Because, since you're glad of who you are, babe, man, my woman'll reap rotten seed
