Dollar Bill Blues--Charley Jordan
E position, standard tuning

SOLO

Says, I went down to the freight depot
Lord, the trains come a-rollin' by
And I looked out the window, and spotted there my love
And I hung down my head and I cried

Cryin', "Baby, don't leave me here, darlin',
Lord, honey, don't leave me here
Lord, darlin', don't leave me here
And it's, babe, don't leave me here."

SOLO

But my mother and father both are dead
My sister's in some far and distant land
My brother's in some free sporting house
In this World's gonna become of me?

And it's what's gwine become of me, baby,
Lord, what's gonna become of me?
Lord, what's gwon' become of me?
And it's what's gon' become of me?

My woman give me money to play coon can
One dollar bill was all she had
One dollar bill was all she had
One dollar bill was all she had

When I set down to play coon can
I couldn't hardly play my hand
For thinkin' 'bout the girl I loved so well
She's gone with another man

She's gone with another man, baby
She's gone with another man
She's gone with another man
She's gone with another man

Which-a-way do that Red River run, baby,
Lord, which-a-way do Red River run?
Lord, which-a-way do Red River run?
Which-a-way do the Red River run?

There's some say it's both east and west, darlin',
And some say it's both north and south
Well, baby, it must-a be so
When it runs by my baby's door
