Banjo Blues - Peg Leg Howell, with Eddie Anthony
C position, standard tuning, Eddie Anthony, fiddle

Got the banjo blues and I'm feeling awful, I mean awful, I mean bad
Got the banjo blues and I'm feeling awful bad
And the blues ain't nothin' but a good man feelin' bad

I had a good woman but the fool laid down and, I mean down and, I mean died
I had a good woman but the fool laid down and died
Got the banjo blues and I'm too darn mean to cry

SPOKEN: Play it a long time, boy. To my gal's in Cincinnati. She's all right with me

Now, give me some cover, honey, I'm getting, I'm getting, I'm cold
Now, give me some cover, I'm getting cold
And the breeze ain't hitting you, you're only getting old

Now the Mississippi River so long and deep and, mean deep and, I mean wide
And the Mississippi River so long and deep and wide
And my gal, she's on the Arkansas side

SPOKEN: Do it for me, boy

And my little babe, she is so tall and, I mean tall and, I mean thin
And my little babe she is so tall and thin
Likes the town's top preacher, but she loves her gin
