Washboard Sam – Flying Crow Blues lyrics

Yas, yas, yas

Flyin' Crow, leave Port Arthur
Come to Shreveport to change her crew
Flyin' Crow leave, Port Arthur
Come to Shreveport to change her crew
She will take water at Texarkana
Yes, boys then keep on through

That Flyin' Crow, whistle
Sounds so lonesome and sad
That Flyin' Crow, whistle
Sounds so lonesome and sad
Lord, it broke my heart
And took the last woman I had

(Texas way!)

Two days, I cried
Three days, I walked the streets
(These women!)
Two days, I cried
Three days, I walked the streets
I couldn't find nobody
To give my po' heart relief

'Beat it out, boy! '

(guitar & instrumental)

Yeah, yas, yas

Now, she's gone, she is gone
With a red and green light behind
Now she's gone, she is gone
With a red and green light behind
The red is for trouble
And the green is for my ramblin' mind.

~
