Tommy Johnson – Lonesome Home Blues lyrics

Would you wash my jumper
Starch my overalls?
I'm gon' find my woman
Said, she's in the world somewhere

What a-good are you, mama?
Sho' nuff killin' me
What a-good are you, mama?
Sho' nuff killin' po' me
But as good as you, mama
Says that, sho' nuff killin' me

I wonder do my
Rider think of me?
I wonder, do my-a
Rider, think of po' me?
Cryin', if she did she would
Sho' Lord, feel my care

I woke this mo'nin
Said my mo'nin prayer
I woke this mo'nin
Said my mo'nin prayer
I woke this mo'nin, baby
Said my mo'nin prayer

I ain't got no woman
Keepin' my little house
I ain't got no woman, no
Keepin' my little house
I ain't got no woman to
Sleep in my board house

Would you wash my jumper
Starch my overalls?
Would you wash my jumper
Starch my overalls?
I'm gon' find my woman
Said she's in the world, somewhere

Said, I'll learn you how to
Starch 'em overalls.
