Work Ox Blues - Texas Alexander
Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang, accompanists, D, standard tuning

Mama, I ain't gon' be your old work ox no more

She get up early in the morning, just a while 'fore day

"Come in, daddy, know my ox is gone."
"Come in, daddy, know my ox is gone."
You can never tell when your ox is comin' back home

You can never tell what these double-crossing women will do
You can never tell what these double-crossing women will do
