How Long, How Long Blues, Part 3-Leroy Carr
Leroy Carr, vocal and piano, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in D position

INTRO SOLO

How long, babe, how long
Must I sing my lonesome song?
How long, how how long, baby, how long

I have been waiting, but the mailman leaves no mail
I’m just drifting, like a ship without a sail
For how long, how how long, baby, how long

Sometimes I think you love me, and I feel so glad
But you stay away, baby, and then I feel so bad
For how long, how how long, baby, how long

And then someday you’ll find me buried, six feet under the ground
And you know it's because you quit me, for I have my face turned down
For how long, how how long, baby, how long

You went and left me, baby, and I'll do the best I can
But if you had to quit me, why steal some other woman’s man?
For how long, how how long, baby, how long

Last night I heard a hound dog, babe, and I felt so blue
'Cause I dreamt he was in the graveyard, looking down at you
For how long, how how long, baby, how long

Sometimes I get to dreaming, that you’re coming back
And I go down to the station, stand gazing up the track
For how long, how how long, baby, how long
