From Medicine Show Man

I'm Going To Walk Though The Streets Of The City



God knows I'm gonna walk through the street of the City
Where my captain have gone on before
I'm gonna sit down on the bank of the river
And I won't be back no more

My mother she have gone on and left me
And my father he have gone on before
And I promised the good Lord I would meet them
On the King-Dom [fairer] shore

God knows I'm gonna walk through the street of the City
Where my captain have gone on before
I'm gonna sit down on the bank of the river
And I won't be back no more

Some day my trouble will be over
And my trial will be over too
I'm gonna walk through the streets with my captain
Mother and I want you to be there too

Lord knows I'm gonna walk through the streets of the City
Where my captain he have gone on before
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
Mother and I ain't comin' back no more


Thanks,
           Scott

In The Evening



Intro

In the evenin in the evenin
Mama when the sun go down
In the evenin mama when the sun go down
Ain't it sad ain't it sad ain't it sad babe
When the one you love is not around
When the sun go down

Well the sun rises up in the east
And it sets down in the west
Well the sun rise in the east baby
And it sets down in the west
Ain't it hard to tell its hard to tell Babe
Which one will treat you the best
When the sun go down

Last night as I lie down a sleepin
I was thinkin to myself
Last night as I lay down sleepin baby
I was thinking to myself
Ain't it hard to tell its hard to tell
Which one will treat you the best
When the sun go down

Solo

Hey please hear my plea
Hey mama please hear my plea
Hey babe please hear poor me


Thanks,

I Will Fly Away

Intro

Some glad mornin when this worried life is over
I will fly('r) away
Now when I die hallelujah bye n bye
I will fly away

Let me tell you I will fly away
Yes I will fly away
Oh when I die hallelujah bye n bye
I will fly away

Just a few more worried days and then
I will fly away
On to a happy world where joy will never end
I will fly away

Let me tell you I will fly away
Oh yes I will fly away
Oh when I die hallelujah bye n bye
I will fly away

Church a members I will fly away
Oh yes I will fly away
Oh when I die hallelujah bye n bye
I will fly away

Some glad mornin when this worried life is over
I will fly away
Oh like a bird when those prison bars is broken
I will fly away

Everybody now I will fly away
Oh yes I will fly away
Now when I die hallelujah bye and bye
I will fly away


Thanks,
           Scott

Re: The Kaiser lyrics - in reply number 14 of this thread the lyrics were never clarified "Xxx Xxx Uncle Sam."  The new Smithsonian Folkways Cd noted by Stuart today has this same song with a different title "The Boys of Your Uncle Sam" which seems to fit the missing part of the lyric. 

Thanks,

Hi all,
In Pink Anderson's "South Forest Boogie", on the page previous to this one in this thread, at: https://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=2742.msg86494#msg86494 , I think the missing line in the second verse is "down to Lureen's Grill", and the second line in the last verse is "who composed this song".  I think the transcription is pretty much right on the money apart from that, and I have entered it in Weeniepedia.
All best,
Johnm

Last verse of Pink Anderson's "She Knows How to Stretch It"
« Reply #67 on: September 06, 2020, 06:07:54 AM »
I'm trying to figure out the very last verse of Pink Anderson's "She Knows How to Stretch It." It's really the very first line of the last verse that is giving me headaches. You can find a video of Pink's performance here:

Thanks for any help or clues you can provide!

Hi jake_fantom,
It sounded to me like Pink sang:
She cooked it faster than anybody you ever did see
I wouldn't tell a baby what that gal told me
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for giving it a listen, Johnm. After conferring with a couple of local blues fans, I believe the lyrics are:

The very best advice I ever did see
I wouldn't-a told baby what the gal told me
She got to learn how to stretch it... etc.

Hi all,
I merged the recent query about a Pink Anderson lyric with the pre-existing Pink Anderson Lyrics thread.
All best,
