Bad Luck Blues (Blind Lemon Jefferson)

I wanna go home and I ain’t got sufficient clothes,

it’s oh doggone, my bad luck soul

I wanna go home, and I ain’t got sufficient clothes,

Ain’t got sufficient – I mean clothes –

well I wanna go home and I ain’t got sufficient clothes

*

I bet my money and I lost it, Lord it’s

Oh doggone, my bad luck soul

Hey, lost a great big roll

I mean lost it – talkin’ about dough –

well I’ll never bet on this old trey game no more

*

Oh my big gal has gone why don’t you quit cryin’

It’s oh doggone, my bad luck soul

Hey, why don’t you quit cryin’

Why don’t you quit – I mean cryin’ –

Well that joker stole off with that long-haired brown of mine

*

Sister you catch the Katy, and I’ll catch that Santa Fe

doggone my bad luck soul

Sister you catch the Katy and I’ll catch that Santa Fe

Talkin’ ’bout Santy –  I mean Fee –

When you get in Denver, pretty mama look around for me

 *

Now the woman I love while she’s five feet from the ground,

It’s oh doggone my bad luck soul

Hey ! five feet from the ground

Five feet from the – I mean ground –

she’s a taylor made woman, she ain’t no hand me down

 *

I ain’t seen my sugar in two long weeks today

It’s oh! doggone my bad luck soul

Seen my sugar in two long weeks today

Two long weeks to – I mean day –

well it’s been so long, seems like my heart’s gonna break
