Man of My Own-Ruth Willis
Ruth Willis, vocal, Fred McMullen, slide in Spanish tuning, Curley Weaver, C position, standard tuning

I went down 18th Street, didn't have on no hat, asking all the women where was my man at
REFRAIN: I'm leavin' you, baby, I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby, tryin' to find a man of my own

I'm gonna grab me a train, ride it 'til it stops, not gonna stay 'round here and be your stumblin' block
REFRAIN: I'm leavin' you, baby, I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby, tryin' to find a man of my own

Woke up this mornin', at the break of day, looked on my pillow where my man used to lay
REFRAIN: So I'm leavin' you, baby, I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby, tryin' to find a man of my own

SOLO

My suitcase is packed, trunk's already home, so it won't be long 'fore your mama be gone
REFRAIN: So I'm leavin' you, baby, I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby, tryin' to find a man of my own

You caused my heart to weep, you caused it to moan, so watch this mean old train I'm on
REFRAIN: So I'm leavin' you, baby, I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby, tryin' to find a man of my own
