​Hard Luck Man Blues

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

My babe my babe, she don't do no way to comfort me
My babe my babe, she don't do no way to comfort me
She know that ain't no way, for a sweet little wife to be

I'm in a worse fix now baby, than I ever been before
I'm in a worse fix now baby, than I ever been before
I'd rather be on the North Pole, living in the ice and snow

Last time my baby quit me, I say I didn't no more want her around
Last time my baby quit me, I say I didn't no more want her around
But every time I see her smiling face, my kind-hearted feeling come down

Love will make you do things, that you swear that you would not do
Love will make you do things, that you swear that you would not do
You know if you ever been in love, what I'm say ain't nothing strange to you

I'm a hard-luck man, just as hard-luck as I can be
I'm a hard-luck man, just as hard-luck as I can be
If I didn't have good friends, I don't know what would become of me
