Bukka White – Poor Boy Long Way From Home lyrics
Poor Boy Long Way From Home 2: 21 Trk 21
Bukka White (Booker T. Washington White)
Recorded: 1963 Memphis, Tennessee
Album: Parchman Farm Blues - Roots rts 33055

Poor boy a long way from home
Poor boy I'm a long way from home
Poor boy I'm a long way from home
I don't have no happy home to go home to

When I left my home my baby's in my arms
When I left my home my baby's in my arms
When I left my home my baby's in my arms
She wanna know, 'Daddy, when you comin' back home? '

(Guitar)

They got me down here on the farm
Got me down here on old farm
I don't have no one to come and post my bail
Baby, I wanna come back home to you

(Guitar)

Sorry, baby I can't call you over the phone
Sorry, I can't call you over the phone
'Cause they got me down here on this little farm
But I can't call you baby over the phone.

(Guitar to end)
