"Jim Lee Blues Pt. 1"

Went away up the river some forty miles or more
I think I heard that big Jim Lee, he blowed
Oh, she blow, so lonesome, like she wasn't gonna blow no more
It blowed like my baby was gettin' on board

Well, my Mama - she's dead
Oh, and my father - well he could be
I ain't got nobody to feel and care for me
And if you don't want me, well just give me your hand
'Cause you'll get a woman quick as I, I get a man (alright)


Well, I laid my head in a deceitful man's arms
And he laid, well, he laid his head back in mine
Oh, it was moonshine, don't you pay me no mind
'Cause I did not let no other man have mine
Well that big Jim Lee keep on backin' up and down
Man stand by the shore, well, if you're water bound
Come on, now
