Statesboro Blues
Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door

I woke up this mornin', had them Statesboro Blues
Woke up this mornin', had them Statesboro Blues
Well, I looked over in the corner baby and Grandpa seemed to have them too

Well my mama died and left me
My papa died and left me
I ain't good lookin' baby
But I'm somewhat sweet and kind
I'm goin' to the country, baby do you wanna go?
But if you can't make it baby, your sister Lucille said she wanna go
Spoken:
And I sure will take her

I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen
Well, I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen
Lord, she treat me like a king, yeah, yeah, yeah
And she look like a doggone queen

Oh, wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door, yeah

Blind Willie McTell
