Big Leg Blues-Mississippi John Hurt
D position, standard tuning

Raise up, baby, get your big leg off of mine
Raise up, baby, get your big leg off of mine
It’s so heavy, made a good man change his mind

I asked you, baby, come and hold my head
I asked you, baby, come and hold my head
Sent me word that you’d rather see me dead

I’m going, I’m going, crying won’t make me stay
I’m going, I’m going, crying won’t make me stay
More you cry, further you drive me away

Some crave high yellow, I like black and brown
Some crave high yellow, I like black and brown
Black won’t quit you, brown won’t lay you down

It was late at midnight, the moon shined bright like day
It was late at midnight, the moon shined bright like day
I seen your faro goin’ up the right of way

Raise up, baby, get your big leg off of mine
Raise up, baby, get your big leg off of mine
It’s so heavy, made a good man change his mind

I asked you, baby, come and hold my head
I asked you, baby, come and hold my head
Sent me word that you’d rather see me dead

I’m going, I’m going, crying won’t make me stay
I’m going, I’m going, crying won’t make me stay
More you cry, further you drive me away

Some crave high yellow, I like black and brown
Some crave high yellow, I like black and brown
Black won’t quit you, brown won’t lay you down

It was late at midnight, the moon shined bright like day
It was late at midnight, the moon shined bright like day
I seen your faro goin’ up the right of way
