​As True As I've Been to You

This song is by Roosevelt Sykes and appears on the compilation album Roosevelt Sykes Vol. 2 (1930-1931) (1992).

Now listen here babe, is that the way you intend to do
Now listen here babe, is that the way you intend to do
Mistreat me for another man, as true as I have been to you

You used to treat me like you loved me, I wonder why you changed your mind
You used to treat me like you loved me, I wonder why you changed your mind
You know I did the best I could, to treat you loving and kind

I'm going to see you babe, when you down and out like myself
I'm going to see you babe, when you down and out like myself
You're going to work for Willie Kelly, and he'll work for somebody else

I'm going away to leave you, I know the men will be better if I do
I'm going away to leave you, I know the men will be better if I do
Because as long as I'm around here, they can't get a fair break at you

I hate to go, and I'm really afraid to stay
I hate to go, and I'm really afraid to stay
But I won't be around here, mama and let you have your way
