A position, pitched at Ab

Somebody just keep on callin' me.
Somebody just keeps on callin' me.
She's got hair like a mermaid on the sea.

She got up this mornin', come a-tippin’ ’cross the floor, said, mama, in her lovin’ stockin' feet.
"Honey, it’s fare thee, sweet papa, fare thee well.
I done all in the world I could tryin’ to get along with you."

Make me down one pallet on your floor.
Make me down a pallet on your floor.
Make it calm and easy, make it down by your door.

I can't stay awake, I done cried the whole night long.
I can't stay awake, I’ve cried the whole night long.
The good woman I love, she done packed her trunk and gone.

Don't mistreat me because I'm young and wild.
Don't mistreat me because I'm young and wild.
Sugar, you ought to remember that you once was a child.

I don't feel welcome and I don't care where I go.
I don't feel welcome, I don't care where I go.
This woman I love, she drove me from her door.

Said, "Fair brown, where did you stay last night?"
Said, "Fair brown, where did you stay last night?
Your hair's all down and you know you ain't talkin' right."

I'm a stranger here, just come in on this train.
Mm-mm-mm-mm, come in on this train.
Want some good man to tell me some woman's name.
