Chattanooga Blues-Ida Cox
Cox, vocal, Love Austin, piano in G

Goin' up on Lookout Mountain, lookin' far as I can see, tryin' to find the man that made a monkey out of me
Reached the depot, in time to catch the Cannonball
Got the blues for Chattanooga, won't be back 'til late next Fall

Down in Chickamaugy, Fort Oglethrope {sic}, grandest bunch of soldiers that you ever saw
On the Tennessee River, down to the lock and dam
Searching every mudhole, tryin' to find my good man, Sam

I was Market to McCauley, East 9th Street, watching everybody that I chanced to meet
At last I saw my daddy, livin' in Tannery Flats
Dressed in a tailor-made suit and a brand new Stetson hat

"Daddy, sweet daddy, I know you'll quit me now, 'cause I don't need no daddy nohow.
Troubles, troubles is all I ever find.
I'm goin' away, try to wear you off my mind."

Down in Chattanooga, there's hospitality, the finest bunch of people in the state of Tennessee
Tired, tired of roaming this way
Got the blues for Chattanooga, I'm going back to stay someday
