CUMBERLAND BLUES (Words by Robert Hunter / music by Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh) The Grateful Dead I can't stay much longer, Melinda The sun is getting high I can't help you with your troubles If you won't help with mine I gotta get down I gotta get down Got to get down to the mine You keep me up just one more night I can't sleep here no more Little Ben clock says quarter to eight You kept me up till four I gotta get down I gotta get down Or I can't work there no more Lotta poor man make a five dollar bill Keep him happy all the time Some other fellow making nothing at all And you can hear him cryin... "Can I go buddy Can I go down Take your shift at the mine?" Got to get down to the Cumberland mine That's where I mainly spend my time Make good money/five dollars a day Made any more I might move away - Lotta poor man got the Cumberland Blues He can't win for losin Lotta poor man got to walk the line Just to pay his union dues I don't know now I just don't know If I'm goin back again I don't know now I just don't know If I'm goin back again
