​Gonna Ramble Blues

This song is by Sally Roberts.

I've got a mind to ramble, mind to leave this town
I've got a mind to ramble, mind to leave this town
I've got to mind my good man, gone and turned me down

Some women scream high yellow, but give me brown and black
Some women scream high yellow, but give me brown and black
'Cause that's the only color man that I really like

Yellow men are evil, brownskin men are too
Oh, yellow men are evil, brownskin men are too
Gonna get me a black man to drive away the Blues

Now the reason why so many men are wearing overhalls today
Oh, the reason why so many men are wearing overhalls today
They let women like me on Saturday night draw their pay

But just as sure as the train rolls up in the yard
Just as sure as the train rolls up in the yard
I'm goin' so far it'll take two dollars to send me a postal card
