Broken-Hearted, Ragged and Dirty Too-Sleepy John Estes
Self-accompanied on guitar, with Jab Jones, piano, and Yank Rachell, mandolin

Now, I'm broke and I'm hearted, I'm ragged and I'm dirty, too
Now I'm broken-hearted, ragged and I'm dirty, too
And if I clean up, pretty mama, may I stay all night with you?

Now, can't come in, mama, let me sit down on your porch
Now, if I can't come in, mama, let me set down on your porch
Lord, I will leave so soon that your man, he won't never know

Now, I went to my window but I couldn't see through my blinds
Now I went to my window, couldn't see through my blinds
I heard the bed springs poppin' and I really heard my baby cryin'


How can I stay married, baby, and feel at ease?
How can I stay married, baby, feel at ease?
And have a woman in Brownsville and she goin' with who she please

Now, sure as the stars gon' shine in the world above
Now, sure as the stars gon' shine in the world above
You know life is too short for to worry 'bout the one you love
