Blues (Follow Me All Day Long)


by Jimmy Rogers
recording of 19

from Complete Shelter Recordings: Chicago Blues Masters, Vol. 2 (Capitol 33916), copyright notice

Blues, the blues follows me all day long
Blues, the blues follows me all day long
I got the blues so bad, the blues tries to drive me away from home

Blues, the blues won't let me take my rest
Blues, the blues won't let me take my rest
My mind keeps rambling, like a wild peace out in the west

You are my all day study, baby, you are my midnight dream
I love that woman, better than anyone I've ever seen

Blues, blues please, please leave me alone
Blues, blues, blues please, please leave me alone
I got the blues so bad, the blues tries to drive me away from home

Dorcie Belle


by Jimmy Rogers
recording of 19

from Complete Shelter Recordings: Chicago Blues Masters, Vol. 2 (Capitol 33916), copyright notice

So many days, people, I had to steal away and cry
So many days, people, I just had to steal away and cry
Now you know, I was to blue to live, but man, you know, I was most to mean to die

Hey, Dorcie Belle, baby, you have been so mean to me
Hey, Dorcie Belle, girl, you have been so mean to me
Now, I got evil with you, Dorcie Belle, baby, you just hang around and see

Hey, Dorcie Belle, you can pack your little bags and go
Hey, Dorcie Belle, you can pack your little bags and go
Just one thing I want you to remember, Dorcie Belle, that you're no better than the girl I had before

Information please, tell me how my baby rides
Information please, tell me how my baby rides
She've been away a long time and I need her right here by my side

When I got my paycheck, she wanted to visit her hometown
When I need her loving, God knows, she can't be found
Information please, tell me how my baby rides
She've been away a long time and I need her right here by my side

She left California, about nine days ago
Why it takes her so long, people, I just don't know
Information please, tell me how my baby rides
She've been away a long time and I need her right here by my side

recording of 1949

from Sloppy Drunk (Evidence 26036) & That's All Right [Black & Blue] (Black & Blue 33504) & Ludella (Antone's ANT-0012-2), copyright notice

Now, Ludella, you know I even paid your house rent, I got you everything you need
Now, Ludella, you done start' some side stuff, baby, you're runnin' around on me
But Ludella, Ludella, baby don't you hear me callin' you?

Now you know I did all in the world I could, Ludella, baby, just tryin' to get along with you

Now I said goodbye Ludella baby, I declare I'm through with you
You can keep on runnin' around woman, I don't care what in the world you do
But Ludella, Ludella, baby don't you hear me callin' you?

Now I did everything in this world, baby, and I can't get along with you

Money, Marbles And Chalk

soundclip


by Jimmy Rogers
recording of 19

from Chicago Bound (Chess), copyright notice

In the evening, after the sun goes down
In the evening, after the sun goes down
The womens all tell me I'm the sweetest man in town

Now I've got a little woman, she's got money, marbles and chalk
She bought me a fine Cadillac, man, that's why I don't have to walk
In the evening, after the sun goes down
The womens all tell me I'm the sweetest man in town

I've got a little woman, she's just as sweet as she can be
I wants the whole world to know, she's all right with me,
when in the evening, after the sun goes down
The womens all tell me I'm the sweetest man in town

Pretty Baby

soundclip


by Jimmy Rogers
recording of 19

from Complete Shelter Recordings: Chicago Blues Masters, Vol. 2 (Capitol 33916) & Sloppy Drunk (Evidence 26036), copyright notice

Pretty, pretty baby, tell me what may be your name
Pretty, pretty baby, tell me what may be your name
Now the reason why that I ask you, I wanna find out if there ever is a chance

Pretty, pretty baby, tell me what you've got on your mind
Pretty, pretty baby, tell me what you've got on your mind
Now the reason why I ask you, baby, you are really fine

Just a few more questions, I will like to ask you before you go
Just a few more questions, I will like to ask you before you go
The name of your street and phone, your address and what floor

I'll rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
I'll rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
Give me another half of pint1, boy, then you will see me go

And I love that moonshine whiskey and I'll tell you what I do
And I love that moonshine whiskey and I'll tell you what I do
The reason is why I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I say, "Ah, bring me another half of pint"
I say, "Hmm, bring me another half of pint"
Well, I believe I'll get drunk, boy, and then we gonna rock this joint

Na, I love that moonshine whiskey and I'll tell you what I do
Yes, I love that moonshine whiskey and I'll tell you what I do
The reason is why I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I say, "Oh, oh, bring me another half of pint"
I say, "Hmm, hm, bring me another half of pint"
Well, I believe I'll get drunk, boy, then we gonna rock this joint

That's Alright

soundclip


by Jimmy Rogers
recording of 19

from Sloppy Drunk (Evidence 26036), copyright notice

You told me baby, once upon a time
You said if I would be yours, you would sure be mine
That's alright
I know you don't love me no more baby, but that's alright
Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

You told me baby, your love for me was strong
When I woke up little girl, half of this big world was gone
That's alright
I guess I'll never be the same but that's alright
Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

(spoken: Play the blues for me Freddie King!)

Please tell me baby, what's getting wrong with you?
You don't treat me halfway right baby, look a like you used to do
But that's alright
I guess I'll never be the same but that's alright
Every night and day I wonder who is loving you tonight

Note: this song was transcribed from a radio broadcast of a 1972 recording.
