Change My Luck Blues


by Blind Lemon Jefferson
recording of in February 1928, Chicago, Illinois

from Blind Lemon Jefferson (Milestone 47022), copyright notice

Hey, hey, mama, that ride has come and gone
I say hey, hey, mama, that ride has come and gone
I just can't see what in the world is you waiting on

I've done met a mama, she ain't long in or tall
I say I got another mama, she ain't long in or tall
But to tell you the truth, man, she's as soft as a butter ball

She got every movement from her head down to her toe
She got every movement from her head down to her toe
And she can break in on the dollar, man busting it where she goes

She was my best mama, but she wouldn't treat me right
I said she was my best mama, but she wouldn't treat me right
She wouldn't do nothin' but barrelhouse all night long

I'm gonna get a mama, I mean with lots of buck
I'm gonna get a mama, I mean with lots of buck
I want to be gone mama, so I can change my luck

Be gone mama, be gone
