Mistreated Blues

This song is by Walter Smith.

I woke up this morning, the day was dawning, I'm broken-hearted, feeling sad and blue
I've been mistreated, don't know what to do
The train was leavin', I had those down home blues

Don't be a-grievin', because I'm leavin', I'm broken-hearted, feeling sad and blue
I've been mistreated, got no time to lose
What a feeling, to have them down home blues

I got up this mornin', packed my grip, goin' down to the railroad, take a farewell trip
I'm a-lookin' for a mama to drive away these blues
Oh, what a feeling, to have them down home blues

I got up this mornin', put my shoes on wrong, I'm a short time here and a long time gone
I'm a-lookin' for a mama to drive away these blues
My train was leaving, I had them down home blues

If that train don't run, I've got a mule to ride, I don't have to catch him 'cause he's already tied
I want me a mama to drive away these blues
My train is leavin', I got them down home blues

My sweet mama's got lovin', it makes me shout, I wish she'd come back before it all gives out
I've been mistreated, got no time to lose
The train is leavin', I got them down home blues
