Kelly's 44 Blues

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

Lord I say good morning Mr pawnshop man, as I walked in his door
Lord I say good morning Mr pawnshop man, as I walked in his door
I says I feel bad this morning, and I really wants my forty-four

Lord I was at a party last night, I was out there till about half past two
Lord I was at a party last night, I was out there till about half past two
I'm going back out there tonight, I'm out to have some shooting to do

Lord the policeman walked around me, they walked around me both night and day
Lord the policeman walked around me, they walked around me both night and day
When they know I got my forty-four, they won't have a word to say

Then I made up in my mind, and I really, don't care how I go
Then I made up in my mind, and I simply don't care how I go
Before I'll be mistreated, I'm going to shoot my forty-four
