Bye Bye Baby Blues-Roosevelt Charles
Roosevelt Charles, vocal and Otis Webster, guitar in A position, standard tuning

Oh, the mailman runnin', babe, I declare he don't leave no mail
Said, the mailman runnin', I declare he don't leave no mail
I believe that my baby, that my babe must be dead and gone

Well, I wrote a letter this mornin', tryin' find out what's goin' on wrong
Well, if I don't get no answer, I believe some other man have taken my place

I believe I'll telephone, 'cause a letter's most too slow
I believe I'll telephone, because a telegram might get lost
(Spoken: Now call her one time, boy)

GUITAR INTERLUDE (Spoken: Hello, Central. Give me Dickens four-oh, two-nine-three, please.)

I hear my telephone ringin', I declare my baby ain't home
I hear my telephone ringin', I declare my baby ain't home
I believe she packed her suitcase, boys, and caught that evenin' train

Goin' down to the station, gon' check on the last train south
Goin' down to the station, check on the last train south
If my baby didn't go south, she must be 'round in this town somewhere (Spoken: Bye-bye, baby)
