Death Blues Lyrics
Robert Pete Williams
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
