(Instrumental and harmonica intro)

When my baby left me
My baby left me a mule to ride
When my baby left me
My baby left me a mule to ride
Now when the train left the station
My mule laid down an died

You know I sent my baby
You know, a brand new twenty dollar bill
You know I sent my baby
You know a brand new twenty dollar bill
Now if that don't bring her back
I'm sho' my shotgun will

(harmonica, piano & instrumental)

Now if I can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do'
Now if I can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do'
I'll leave so early in the mo'nin
Your real man would never know

(harmonica, piano & instrumental)

Lake Michigan ain't no river
Chicago ain't no hill town
Lake Michigan ain't no river
An Chicago ain't no hill in town
But if I feel this-a way tomorrow
I swear I'll be Memphis bound.

(harmonica, piano & instrumental)
