Doin' A Stretch-Blind Blake
F position, standard tuning, with Alex Robinson, piano

I had a fall, five to twenty-one
When I get back we gonna have some fun
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch
Baby, baby tell me the true facts
Will you be waiting when I get back?
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch

I told the warden you’d pay my fine
It didn’t seem that he paid me no mind
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch
The good things you have done I can’t forget
If you quit me, baby, it’ll be my death
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch

I love you, baby, whole heart and soul
Stand by me ‘til I get my parole
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch
Be careful, baby, while I’m gone
You can’t be good, I’ll be gone too long
Up the river, daddy gonna do a stretch

Goin’ away, honey, I’ll be out all day
If I know, sinner me
Up the river, daddy do a stretch
Baby, baby tell me the true facts
You be waiting when I get back?
Up the river, daddy’s gonna do a stretch
