Blind Lemon Jefferson – Long Distance Moan lyrics

I'm flyin' to South Carolina, I've got to go there this time
I'm flyin' to South Carolina, I've got to go there this time
Woman and tell me, Texas, about to make me lose my mind

Long distance, long distance, would you please give me a credit call
Long distance, long distance, would you give me please your credit call
Walk up to my girl in South Carolina, who looks like her hands done squalled1

Just wanna ask my baby, what in the world is she been doin'
Wanna ask my baby, what in the world is she been doin'
Give your lovin' to another joker and its sure gonna be my ruin

Eh, long distance, I can't help but moan
Mmm mmm, I can't help but moan
My baby's voice sounds so sweet, almost wrecked the telephone

You don't know your love, you're wrapped deep so far from you
You don't know your love, your letter, I said she's so far from you
You can get a long distance moan, and you don't care what you do

I think I hear the tele buzzin', get my darlin' off my mind
Oh you tele-parties, get my baby off my mind
This long distance moan about to worry me to death this time
