Just A Feeling

soundclip


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


Just a feelin',
feelin' I had on my mind
Just a feeling,
feelin' I had in my mind
Lay down dreamin',
I woke up this morning screamin' and cryin'

Just a dream,
dream I dreamed last night
Just a dream,
dream I dreamed last night
I do everything to try to please you,
still I ain't doin' it right

Just another pain,
really it hurts so bad
Just another pain,
really it hurts so bad
Got the funniest feelin',
a man most ever had

Black night is fallin',
my pains is comin' down again
Deep black night is fallin',
the pains is comin' down again
I feel so sorry,
people, I ain't got no friend

I'm just your fool, can't help myself
I love you baby, and no one else
I ain't crazy, you are my baby,
I'm just your fool

I'm just your fool, I must confess,
to still love you baby, and take your mess
I ain't lyin', no use a jivin',
I'm just your fool

You must be tryin' to drive me crazy,
treatin' me the way you do
I ask you please have mercy baby,
let me be, happy too

If you gonna leave me, for someone new,
gonna buy me a shotgun, shoot it at you
I ain't lyin', no use a jivin',
I'm just your fool

I'm just your fool, can't help myself
I love you baby, and no one else
I ain't crazy, you are my baby,
I'm just your fool

Key To The Highway

soundclip


by Big Bill Broonzy / Charles Segar
recording of 1952-1963
from
The Chess Years 1952-1963 (Charly CD Red Box 5), copyright notice

I've got the key, to the highway,
billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running,
because, walkin' is most too slow

I'm goin' back to the border,
where I'm better known
Because, you haven't done nothin',
but drove, a good man away from home

Give me one more kiss, mama,
just before I go
I'm gonna leave this town,
girl I, won't be back no more

When the moon peep over the mountain,
honey, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna roam this highway,
until the break of day

Well it's so long, so long baby,
I'm gonna say goodbye
I'm gonna roam this highway,
until the day I die

Last night,
I lost the best friend I ever had
Now you gone and left me,
that makes me feel so bad

Well now it's early in the mornin',
and my love is comin' down for you
Early in the mornin',
and my love is comin' down for you
I want you to tell me baby,
baby what are we gonna do

I'm gonna wait 'til tomorrow,
they tell me every day brings about a change
I'm gonna wait 'til tomorrow,
they tell me every day brings about a change
I love you, love you babe,
you know that is a crying shame

I have blues with a feelin',

Well you was my first girl,
and you should-a have been my wife

I want you to call me tomorrow,

I want you to call me tomorrow,
and tell me what's goin' on wrong
I wonder why did you leave me,

I'm in love with you baby,
and I don't care what the people say

Well, that mean old, mean old Frisco,
and that low down Santa Fe

Gone took my babe away,

Well my mother, she done told me,
and my father told me too
Yes, my mother she done told me,
father told me too
Son, every woman grins in your face,
well, she ain't no friend of you

Lord I wonder,
will she ever think of me
Lord I wonder,
will my baby think of me
Yes I wonder, I wonder,
will my baby think of me

Lord I ain't got no,
special rider here
Lord I ain't got no,
special rider here
I'm gonna leave,
'cause I don't feel welcome here

This is a mean old world,
tryin' to live in by yourself
This is a mean old world,
tryin' to live in by yourself
Can't get the one you're lovin',
have to use somebody else

I've got the blues,
gonna pack my things and go
Yes, I've got the blues,
gonna pack my things and go
Well I guess you don't love me,
you're lovin' Mr. So-And-So

Sometime I wonder why,
can your love be so cold
Sometime I wonder why,
can your love be so cold
Seem like to me you don't want me,
I'm just an unlucky So-And-So

My Baby's Sweeter

soundclip


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


Your baby ain't sweet like mine
She do the right thing every time
She needs me
She please me
All day long she hug and she leads me

Your baby ain't sweet like mine
She really love me all the time
She clothes me
She boards me
All day long she kiss and she hug me
Your baby ain't sweet like mine

Your baby ain't sweet like mine
She makes me feel so good and kind
When I'm lonesome,
when I'm blue,
my baby knows just what to do

Your baby ain't, your baby ain't sweet like mine
She do the right thing, do the right thing all the time

Nobody But You

soundclip


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


Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe,
you make my life complete

Started the ball a rollin',
rollin' like a tumble weed1
Never stopped rollin',
'til ya grabbed my heart,
and you know what I want to be

Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe,
my sugar, 'cause you sure is sweet

You put the lid on the pot,
put the salt in the bread
Made my life worth livin',
and I'm eatin' every word I said

Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe
Nobody but you babe,
upset my very soul

[Little Walter]

__________
Note 1: if you've watched a lotta '50's-'60's western movies, like myself, you probably know what tumble weed is, for all those who are lacking in this department of American culture: tumble weed is a seemingly rootless non earthbound ball shaped plant of the weed category that is swepped by the wind, tumbling across the southern and western plains of U.S. America. Hence the name tumble weed.
