Overtime Blues

This song is by Walton Vincson and appears on the split compilation album Charlie McCoy & Walter Vincson 1928-1936 (1984) by various artists.

I've been workin' overtime, baby, oh, and the sun got hot
Been workin' overtime, baby, oh, and the sun got hot
Just put a block on me, baby, turn me in your back yard

I been walkin' all night when the sun did 'fuse to shine
Been walkin' all night when the sun did 'fuse to shine
And if I find her tonight I'm gonna really work her overtime

Sweet baby, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do no good
Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do no good
That's when your faro, she have quit you, done everything you could

The work ain't so hard, baby, just the way you do
Work ain't so hard, baby, it's just the way you do
Remember the way you treat poor Walter, it's comin' home to you

It'll be a day goin' after, need my help along
Day goin' and after, you'll need my help along
That's when you call for poor Walter but he won't be in your home
