Broke and Hungry Blues - Peg Leg Howell, with Ollie Griffin(?)
Spanish tuning, capoed up, Ollie Griffin (?), fiddle

Says, I'm sick, broke and hungry, good gal done drove me away
I'm sick, broke and hungry, good gal done drove me away
I'm outdoors, mama, ain't got nowhere to stay

Said, the woman I love, she done put me down
Said, the woman I love, she done put me down
It wouldn't worry my mind, but the news all over town

I got a woman Cincinnati, one in Tennessee, woman in Georgia is good enough for me
My good gal quit me, like to kill me dead
I wake up every morning, the blues all around my head

Can't see why, mama, you treat me like you do
Can't see why, mama, you treat me like you do
If you don't want me, sayin' I don't want you

You 'buked me, dogged me, drove me from your door
You 'buked me, dogged me, drove me from your door
Told me to my face you don't want me no more

I was standing at the station, waiting for my train
Standing at the station, waiting for my train
Outdoors, sleeping in the rain

Pretty mama, pretty mama, honey what's on your mind?
Tell me, pretty mama, honey what's on your mind?
Say, you can't quit me, t'ain't no need of tryin'
