Black Mattie Blues - Sleepy John Estes
Self-accompanied on guitar, with "Tee", harmonica, and Yank Rachell, mandolin

Oh, Black Mattie, where did you stay last night?
With your hair all tangled, clothes ain't fittin' you right
With your hair all tangled, clothes ain't fittin' you right

Now when I had money, "Hello, Sugarpie"
Now I done spent all my money, "Goodbye, country guy"
Now I done spent all my money, "Goodbye, country guy"

Lord, my heart's in sorrow, tears come a-rolling down
Now you know by that, babe, fixin' to leave your town
Now you know by that, babe, I'm fixin' to leave your town

Now, life ain't worth livin' if you ain't with the one you love
Lord, life ain't worth livin' if you ain't with the one you love
Now, life ain't worth livin' if you ain't with the one you love

Now, you 3 X 7, you know what you want to do
Now, the day that you quit me, I won't be mad wit' you
Now, the day that you quit me, I won't be mad wit' you
