Furry Lewis – Rock Island Blues lyrics
I'd the Rock Island Blues waiting on the Rock Island Train
Rock Island Blues waiting on the Rock Island Train
Got a girl in Texas and I'm scared to call her name

Don't you wish your girl was long and tall like mine
Don't you wish your girl was long and tall like mine
Lord she ain't good-looking but I 'clare she takes her time

Baby, where you stay last night?
Baby baby, where you stay last night?
Lord you didn't come home till the moon was shining bright

I'm gon' wash my face in the Gulf of Mexico
I'm gon' wash my face in the Gulf of Mexico
I'm gon' eat my breakfast a thousand miles below

Wonder will my suitcase hold my clothes?
Wonder will my suitcase hold my clothes?
I ain't got so many but I got so fur to go

I ain't got no woman, I ain't got no lady friend
I ain't got no woman, ain't got no lady friend
I ain't got nobody t'say Furry where you been?
