Mama, 'Tain't Long Fo' Day-Blind Willie McTell
Spanish tuning, with a slide

Wake up, mama, don't you sleep so hard
Wake up, mama, don't you sleep so hard
For it's these old blues, walkin' all over your yard

I've got these blues, reason I'm not satisfied
I've got these blues, I'm not satisfied
That's the reason why I stole away and cried

Blues grabbed me at midnight and didn't turn me loose 'til day
Blues grabbed me at midnight, didn't turn me loose 'til day
I didn't have no mama to drive these blues away

The big star fallin', mama, it ain't long fo' day
The big star fallin', mama, 'tain't long fo' day
Maybe the sunshine'll drive these blues away

SOLO (Spoken: Oh, come here quick. Come on, mama, you know I got you.)

Mmm-hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Mmm-hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
