Milk Cow Blues    (1934)

All in good morning, I said Blues how do you do?
All in good morning, I said Blues how do you do?
Do mighty well this morning, can't get along with you

How can I do right, baby when you won't do right yourself?
How can I do right, baby when you won't do right yourself?
Lord, if my good gal quits me, well I don't want nobody else

Now you can read out your hymnbook, preach out your Bible
Fall down on your knees and pray, the good Lord to help you
Because you going to need, you going to need my help some day
Mama if you can't quit your sinning, please quit your lowdown ways

Says, I woke up this a-morning and I looked outdoors
Says, I knowed my mamlish milk cow pretty mama, Lord, by the way she lowed
Lord, if you see my milk cow, buddy, I said, please drive her home
Says, I ain't had no milk and butter, mama, Lord, since a-my cow been gone

Says my blues fell this morning and my love's come falling down
Says my blues fell this morning and my love's come falling down
Says I'll be a low down dog, mama, but please don't dog me around

Takes a rockin' chair to rock, mama, a rubber ball to roll
Takes a little teasin' bounce with you mama just to pacify my soul
Lord, I don't feel welcome, please, no place I go
Oh that woman that I love, mommy, have done drove me from her door
