Blind Lemon Jefferson – Black Horse Blues lyrics
Black Horse Blues (2543-1) - Blind Lemon Jefferson
Chicago C. April 1926, Pm 12367
C position and pitch

Tell me what time do the trains come through your town.
I wanna know what time do the trains come through your
Town.
I wanna laugh and talk with a long-haired teasin' brown
.

One goes south at eight and it's one goes north at nine.
One goes south at eight and one goes north at nine.
I got a hour to talk with that long-haired brown of mine.

Go and get my black horse and saddle up my grey mare.
Go get my black horse and saddle up my grey mare.
I'm goin' off to my good gal, she's in the world
Somewhere.

I can't count the times that I stole aside and cried.
I can't count the times that I stole aside and cried.
Sugar, the blues ain't on me, but things ain't goin' on
Right.
