« on: September 01, 2015, 10:19:41 AM »
Hi everybody, and thanks a lot for keepin' this superb site around.
Could somebody help to complete/correct the lyrics of this blues by Jessie Mae?



GO BACK TO YOUR USED TO BE
--------------------------

You've done me wrong, yeah
you've done me wrong,
you've broke our home
you've broke our home.
Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

I know you love me babe
Would you lay across my bed?
 ...... (?)
talkin' out of your head,
Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

Won't gimme me no money, babe
won't buy me no clothes
You won't gimme me no money, babe
won't buy me no clothes
That's why, baby
I'll let you go.
Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

I'm so tired baby
So tired of cryin'
I'm so tired baby
I'm so tired of cryin'.
Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

The thrill is gone, babe
it's so low, babe
The thrill is gone, babe
it's so low, babe.
Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

Now you can go on back
go back to you used to be.

Hi Jay Bee,
I'm hearing for that verse:
   I know you didn't love me, babe, when you laid out 'cross my bed
   Drinkin' that old Crown Roy',  talkin' all out your head
All best,
Johnm

GO BACK TO YOUR USED TO BE
----------------------------------
 (Jessie Mae Hemphill)

You've done me wrong, yeah
you've done me wrong,
you've broke up our home
you've broke up our home.
Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.

I know you didn't love me, babe,
when you laid out 'cross my bed
Drinkin' that old Crown Roy,
talkin' all out your head.
Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

Won't gimme me no money, babe
won't buy me no clothes
You won't gimme me no money, babe
won't buy me no clothes
That's why, baby
I'll let you go.
Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

I'm so tired baby
So tired of cryin'
I'm so tired baby
I'm so tired of cryin'.
Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

The thrill is gone, babe
it's so low, babe
The thrill is gone, babe
it's so low, babe.
Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.

That's alright, that's alright,
that's alright.

Now you can go on back
go back to your used to be.
