What Makes a Man Blue

This song is by Sylvester Weaver and appears on the compilation album Sylvester Weaver, Vol. 1 (1923-1927) (1992).

Folks, you want to know what makes a man blue?
To have a woman that's not true
I mean one that you can not trust
Tries to make a fool of you

No, no, nobody knows
No, no, nobody knows
Woman changes her mind, which-a-way it's going to go

Last night, had my baby on my knee
Last night, had my baby on my knee
Woke up this mornin', she done slipped away from me

I'd rather be dead, laid in my lonesome grave
I'd rather be dead, laid in my lonesome grave
Have a monkey-woman, takin' me to be her slave

If I could holler, just like a mountain lion
'F I could holler, just like a mountain lion
I would holler so loud, ask the sun not to shine
