East Cairo Street Blues-Bill Cox
Bill Cox, vocal and guitar in G position, standard tuning

I was standin' down on East Cairo Street one day, Lord
I was standin' down on East Cairo Street one day
I was standin' down on East Cairo Street one day
One dime's all I had, to my name

I bought the morning news, Lord
I bought the morning news
I bought the morning news
And I bought me a cigar, too

YODELING

Mama, don't treat your daddy mean, Lord
Mama, don't treat your daddy mean
Mama, don't treat your daddy mean
You're the meanest woman that a man 'most ever seen

YODELING

Do you want your man to be bad like Jesse James?
Do you want your man to be bad like Jesse James?
Do you want your man to be bad like Jesse James?
Take two guns and stop a long passenger train

YODELING

I'm broke, I ain't got a dime, Lord
I'm broke, I ain't got a dime
I'm broke, I ain't got a dime
Any man will get in tough luck some time

YODELING

My signifyin' mama done me wrong, Lord
My signifyin' mama done me wrong
My signifyin' mama done me wrong
And I always want to sing this lonesome song

YODELING

I'm tellin' you the hard luck I've had
I'm tellin' you the hard luck I've had
I'm tellin' you the hard luck I've had
Now, the blues ain't nothin' but a good man feelin' bad
