Blind Willie McTell – Mama 'T Ain't Long Fo' Day lyrics

Wake up mama, don't you sleep so hard
Wake up mama, don't you sleep so hard
For it's these old blues walkin' all over your yard
I've got these blues [Incomprehensible] I'm not satisfied
I've got these blues, I'm not satisfied

That's the reason why I stroll away and cry
Blues grabbed me in midnight, they didn't turn me loose till day
Blues grabbed me in midnight, didn't turn me loose till day
I didn't have no mama to drive these blues away

The big star fallin', mama 't ain't long fo' day
The big star fallin', mama 't ain't long fo' day
[Incomprehensible] sunshine I drive these blues away

Oh, come here quick, come on mama, now I've got you
