Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee – That's Why I'm Walking lyrics

[Incomprehensible] I wake just like a flame
Sixteen long hours will grab you to your grave
That's why I'm walking, walking my blues away
Oh, the sun's gonna shine in my back door someday

I once had a car, it was painted white and black
Couldn't keep up the payment, the man he took it back
That's why I'm walking, walking my blues away
Well, the sun's gonna shine in my back door someday
Tell them about it Brownie

I wouldn't tell a mule to get up, no, if he sat down in my lap, woah
If that's what kill my old grand pap
That's why I'm walking, walking my blues away
Well, the sun's gonna shine in my back door someday

You can't pack cotton and speck together corn
You can't take right people and make it wrong
That's why I'm walking, walking my blues away
Well, the sun's gonna shine in my back door someday, woo
