Doc Watson – Jimmie's Texas Blues lyrics

The way I been treated, some time I wish I was dead;
The way I been treated, some time I wish I was dead;
[Spoken] Lord know...
'Cause I ain't got no place
To lay my weary head.
[Yodel]

When I want you, woman, I always find you gone;
Ev'rytime I want you, always find you gone;
[Spoken] You're always gone...
Listen here, good mama,
I'm gonna put your air brakes on.

[Yodel]

Some like Chicago, some love Memphis, Tennessee;
Some like Chicago, some love Memphis, Tennessee.
[Spoken] Ask sweet mama...
Give me sweet Dallas, Texas,
Where the women think the world of me.
[Spoken] Hey, hey, hey...

[Yodel]
You may have your troubles, I'm having my troubles, too;
You may have your troubles, I'm having my troubles, too;
Yes, I know how it feels
When you're feeling so doggone blue.
[Spoken] Have mercy, Lord...

[Yodel]
I'm not singin' the blues, I'm tellin' you the hard luck I've had;
I'm not singin' blues, I'm tellin' you the hard luck I've had.
[Spoken] Baby, I've had it, too...
The blues ain't nothin' but a good man feeling bad.

[Yodel}
