​Booker T Blues

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

I have my books in my hand, I'm going across to see Booker T
I have my books in my hand, I'm going across to see Booker T
I'm gonna get Mister so and so, teach me my ABC

He told me A is for Arthur, beginning of everything
Eve had lighted Adam, then started to swing

I have my books in my hand, I'm going across to see Booker T
I'm gonna get Mister so and so, teach me my ABC

She told me B is for Better, I had better save my dough
The way my gal was cuttin', she swear I never know
I have my books in my hand, I'm going across to see Booker T
I'm gonna get Mister so and so, to teach me my ABC

He told me D is for Dog (?), where I always stayed
Think my gal was loving you, she's just the other way

I have my books in my hand, I'm going across to see Booker T
I'm gonna get Mister so and so, to teach me my ABC
