Blue And Lonesome

soundclip


by "Little" Walter Jacobs
recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice


I'm blue and lonesome,
as a man can be
I'm blue and lonesome ooh,
as a man can be
I don't have headaches over myself,
my love has gone away from me

Baby, please,
come on back home to me
Baby, please yeah,
come on back home to me
Yes, my heart is full of misery,
baby, you won't be sweet to me

I'm gonna cast myself off*,
down in the deep blue see
I'm gonna cast myself off*, yeah,
down in the deep blue see
Where the whales and the fishes*,
have a fuss over me

recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice

Blues with a feelin',
that's what I have today
Blues with a feelin',
that's what I have today
I'm gonna find my baby,
if it takes all night and day

What a lonesome feelin',
when your by yourself
What a lonesome feelin',
when your by yourself
When the one that you're lovin',
have gone away livin'

Girl you know I love you baby,
I wanted the reason why
You only left me baby,
then you left me here to cry
Blues with a feelin',
that's what I have today
I'm gonna find my baby,
if it takes all night and day

The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice


No kiddin', I'm ready to fight,
I've been lookin' for my baby all night
If I get her in my sight,
boom boom!, out go the lights

I thought I treated my baby fair,
and now she's gettin' all in my hair
If I get her in my sight,
boom boom!, out go the lights

No kiddin', I'm ready to go,
when I find her boy don't you know
If I get her in my sight,
boom boom! out go the lights

I never been so mad before,
when I found out she ain't mine no more
If I get her in my sight,
boom boom! out go the lights

Well I'm a crazy mixed up kid,
and I love to dance like this
Well I love to rock 'n' roll,
because it satisfy my soul
Well I love to jump and shout,
hey it really knock me out
You give me music with a beat,
it'll knock me off my feet

I don't care what you heard,
this is a crazy mixed up world
Crazy mixed up world
Crazy mixed up world
Crazy mixed up world
I'm in a crazy mixed up world

When I loosen up down inside,
my feets begin to glide
My heart goes pump, pump, pump,
the music makes me jump, jump, jump
I can't control myself no more,
music got me on the floor
Well I'm crazy ain't you heard,
I'm in a crazy mixed up world
Crazy mixed up world
Crazy mixed up world

Dead Presidents

soundclip


by Willie Dixon / Billy Emerson
recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice

Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm bad bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents

A little bit of Lincoln can't park the car
Washington he can't go too far
Jefferson is good, played the track
If you think you're gonna bring some big bitch back

Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm bad bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents

Hamilton on a ten can get you straight
But Jackson on a twenty is really great
And if you're talkin' about a poor man's friend
Grant will get you out of whatever you're in

Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents

A hundred dollar Franklin is really sweet
A five hundred McKinley is the one for me
If I get a Cleveland, I'm really set
A thousand dollar Cleveland is hard to get

Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents

Everybody got somebody,
you know I want somebody too
Everybody got somebody,

You better be careful, baby,
'cause I've got my eyes on you

Everybody needs somebody,
and I need somebody too
Everybody needs somebody,
and I need somebody too
I'm gonna make up with you, baby,
if it's the very last thing I do

Well I'll let you know,
she's built up from the ground
She's got a way of lovin',
makes my love come fallin' down
But I got somebody
and I found somebody too
I won't have to worry no more,
don't care what they do

I've had my fun,

Want you to write my lover,
and tell her the shape I'm in
Please write my lover,
tell her the shape I'm in
I want her to pray for me,
help me forgive these sins

Gonna send for the doctor,
but I know he ain't gonna do no good
Gonna send for the doctor,
I know he ain't gonna do no good
It's all your fault,
you could help me if you would

Girl left me, left me here to cry
Know I love her, know she's my desire
Know she's my desire
Know she's my desire
Know she's my desire
Know she's my desire

Came home this mornin', about half past four
Found that note, layin' on my floor
Gone away leave you, you just don't know
heard some bad talk, somethin' that you said
Somethin' that you said
Somethin' that you said

Come on back baby, honey please don't go
Whoaw I love you, you'll never know
You'll never know
You'll never know
You'll never know

My kind of baby, you know it's so
I can tell you, you know it ain't no joke
No it ain't no joke

Come on back baby, don't do me wrong
You know I love you, please come back home
Come on back home
Come on back home

I Got To Find My Baby

soundclip


by
"Little" Walter Jacobs
recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice


I've got to find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I got to find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I ain't had no real good lovin',
since that girl said goodbye

Well my father was a good lord,
and his words will never die
You may look good baby,
but you gotto hang your head and cry
I got to find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I ain't had no real good lovin',
since that girl said goodbye

Now I'm gonna walk the floor baby,
'til my moustache drag the ground
I got to find my baby 'cause I,
I know where she could be found
I'm gonna find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I had no real good lovin',
since that girl said goodbye

Girl I know if it's the last thing,
I ever do in my life
I'm gonna find my big leg1 brownskin and,
make her my wife
I got to find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I ain't had no real good lovin',
since that girl said goodbye

Well I hate to see the sun,
scurry to the West
I know my whole life gonna,
be a solid mess
I got to find my baby,
I declare I wouldn't lie
I ain't had no real good lovin',
since that girl said goodbye

Note 1: big leg, initially had "beebly" instead if big leg. Thanks to Tom Albanese for pointing out this error te me.

I Got To Go

The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice

I ain't seen my baby,
and the evening sun is goin' down
I ain't seen my baby,
and the evening sun is goin' down
I've got the blues,
and my baby don't be found

Leavin' in the mornin',
baby you know I got to go
Leavin' in the mornin',
you know I got to go
You say you don't love me,
I can't live here no more

The moon is risin',
and the sun is done goin' down
The moon is risin',
and the sun is done goin' down
I've got to leave,
can't stay in your town

It Ain't Right

soundclip


by
"Little" Walter Jacobs
recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice


(spoken: Go!)

You know it ain't right to treat me like you do
You know it ain't right to treat me like you do
When you don't want me to, do these things to you

You know it ain't right to treat me this-a way
You know it ain't right to treat me this-a way
Takes my money, and go off to play

You know it ain't right to say what you did
You know it ain't right to say what you did
You've got another man, and you can't keep it hid

You know it ain't right to stay out all night long
You know it ain't right to stay out all night long
I ain't got nobody, to carry my business on

It's Too Late Brother

Al Duncan

from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice


Ain't no need-a goin' no further brother
Ain't no need-a goin' no further man
Told you back in forty five,
you had better quit that jive
Ain't no need-a goin' no further man

Ain't no need-a goin' no further brother
Ain't no need-a goin' no further man
You thought you was pretty slick,
takin' everybody's chick
Ain't no need-a goin' no further brother

Ain't no need-a goin' no further brother
Ain't no need-a goin' no further man
You had diamonds and Cadillac cars,
tourin' the world and settin' up bars
Ain't no need-a goin' no further now

Ain't no need-a goin' no further brother
Ain't no need-a goin' no further man
Your money's gone and your health is bad,
all you can tell is the fun you had
Ain't no need-a goin' no further now
No, ain't no need a goin' no further now
