  2. Death Blues Song Lyrics

    [You know, I walk along sometime, to myself.
    I wonder, "Does ev'ybody have the same idea that I got?"
    Sometime I has a mind to leave this place.
    I tell my people that sometime--but they say:
    "You know, you doin' time." Yeah,
    I do know I'm doin' time, but I thinks about my brother then.
    All of them is well, and I'm the one that's been hangin' around here.
    I take the blues bad sometimes.
    I got somethin' to tell you, baby, but I hate to tell you this.
    You may not want to hear it.
    Sometime I be walkin' along, feel like to me I'm gon' fall dead.
    She asks me what's wrong with me. I don't know,
    maybe my nerves bad. 'Cause I don't drink that much.
    But I think the most of it just about worked out. But you know,
    the way I work out here, baby, now,
    it's many mornin' to go back there and work.
    You know, they, they do allow a man a break up there.
    But I ain't had nary here, since I been here. Work you up in there.]

    But I don't blame nobody, nobody but myself
    I don't blame nobody, baby, nobody but myself
    Lord, what I did down there, brought it all on myself

    You better draw me an insurance, darlin'
    So you can have somebody to debt on me
    'Cause I liable to haul off and die, baby
    Ain't about the thing that you get after my death
