Real Estate Blues

This song is by Will Bennett and appears on the compilation Sinners and Saints (1926-1931) (1992).

All I want is a new pair of shoes, that is all I pray
Some old place I can go and lay my weary head

Then I'm about satisfied, any old place to be
For any old where I hangs my hat, is home sweet home to me

I don't need no real estate, and neither no bond along
All I want is a place to stay, I can call my home

I say goodbye hard luck hello joy, here I come for tea
For I didn't bring nothing to this old world, and I can't carry nothing away

Some people want a lot of real estate, and some lot of bonds along
Then when they die, leave it behind for someone to enjoy

Then when you're dead lying in your grave, they'll pass by and smile
Say yes indeed, don't you see, Johnny (?) left aside

Then they'll hang around your loving home and make welcome to themselves
(?) everything going their way

I say goodbye hard luck hello joy, here I come for tea
For I didn't bring nothing to this old world, and I can't carry nothing away

I don't need no real estate, and neither no bond along
All I want is a place to stay, I can call my home

I say goodbye hard luck hello joy, here I come for tea
For I didn't bring nothing to this old world, and I can't carry nothing away
