FLORIDA BOUND BLUES (Clarence Williams) as recorded by Bessie Smith with Clarence Williams (piano) November 17th 1925 New York Goodbye north, hello south, Goodbye north, hello south, It's so cold up here that the words freeze in your mouth! I'm goin' to Florida where I can have my fun, I'm goin' to Florida where I can have my fun, Where I can lay out in the green grass and look up at the sun. Hey, hey redcap, help me with this load, Redcap porter, help me with this load, xxxxx? Oh, the steamboat Mister Captain, let me get on board. I got a letter from my daddy, he bought me a sweet piece of land, I got a letter from my daddy, he bought me a small piece of ground, You can't blame me for leavin' Lord, I mean I'm Florida bound. My papa told me, my mama told me too, My papa told me, my mama told me too, Don't let them bell bottom britches make a fool out o' you! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2015)
