Sonny Boy Williamson I – North Wind Blues lyrics

Well, I'm just settin' here thinkin'
Know if I goin' on back down south, again
Yes, I'm settin' here thinkin' babe-eee-e
Know I'm goin' back down south, again
Boys, an I won't call you up in Chicago
My clothes won't even fits this north wind

Oh, just a sad word my baby said
Well, she didn't want me no more
Yes, it's a sad word my baby said
Well, she didn't want me no more
Lord, I'm goin' back down south
Babe, where that weather fit my own clothes

'Play it one time, Boy'

'Get it on, I said'

(Instrumental & harmonica)

Well, I cried last night, baby
Cried all night befo' oor
Well, I cried last night, mama wee-ooo-e
Well, I cried all night befo'-oor
Well, I must stop my way a-livin'
Yes man, I won't have to cry no mo'

Lordy, now another woman
Well, would throw my cap outdo's
'Play it a while boys'
Yes, an now another woman
Yeah, would throw my cap outdo'
Well, I'm goin' back down south
Eee-well-well, when the weather fit my clothes.
