Dark Road Blues-Willie Lofton
Dropped-D tuning

Cryin', I ain't goin' down that dark road by myself
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
Ain't goin' down that dark road by myself
Cryin', if I don't carry you, carry me somebody else

Cryin', who's that yonder, comin' up the road
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
Who's that yonder, comin' up the road?
Cryin', that look like my faro, but she walk too slow

Cryin', I won't let you do me, do me like you did poor shine
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
I won't let you do me like you did poor shine
Cryin', you taken the poor boy's money, gonna have to kill me, 'fore you take mine

Spoken, before solo: Hey!

Cryin', you gonna have to kill me 'fore you take mine

Cryin', smoke like lightnin', shine like pearls of gold
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
Smoke like lightnin', shine like pearls of gold
Cryin', I wouldn't get in trouble, save nobody's soul

Cryin', a spider, spider climbin' up the wall
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
Spider, spider, climbin' up the wall
Cryin', I asked the spider did he want his ashes hauled

Cryin', I ain't gonna marry, ain't gonna settle down
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama, oh ho,
Ain't gonna marry, ain't gonna settle down
Cryin', I'm a-stay right here 'til my mustache drags the ground

Cryin', where was you when the Frisco left the yard
Now don't you hear me talkin' to you pretty mama
Where was you, Frisco left the yard?
Cryin', I was standin' right there, police had me barred
