Shorty George

This song is by Smith Casey and appears on the compilation Alan Lomax: Blues Songbook (2003).

Oh, what on earth's the matter now?
Lord, what on earth's the matter now?
Lord, just 'bout by myself

Yes, he died on the road
Yes, he died on the road
I know my dear friend gone

Ah, he was a friend of mine
Yes, he was a friend of mine
Every time I think now, I just can't keep from cryin'

I stole away and cried
Yes, stole away and cried
Never had no money, now, I wasn't satisfied

Ah, wonder what's the matter now?
Lord, what on earth's the matter now?
Can't get no letter, Lord, don't need no letter nohow

Ah, 'bout to lose my mind
Ah, 'bout to lose my mind
Shouldn't've been so tired, 'bout this great long time
