​Poor Boy Blues

This song is by Roosevelt Sykes and appears on the album Roosevelt Sykes Vol. 1 (1929-1930) (1992).

Lord I'm a poor boy, I'm going to and fro
Lord I'm a poor boy, I'm going to and fro
What's on my mind, don't nobody know

Lord I am disgusted, and heart-broken too
Lord I am disgusted, and heart-broken too
So I went back to my mama, nothing else I can do

Poor boy poor boy, ain't got no friends at all
Poor boy poor boy, ain't got no friends at all
Lord I'm just like a rat, running from stall to stall

Lord, have mercy on me please
Lord, have mercy on me please
Lord I just want you, give this poor boy's heart some ease
