HAND ME DOWN MY WALKIN' CANE (traditional) as recorded by The Boswell Sisters with The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra June 17th 1932 New York Hand me down my walkin' cane, Hand me down my walkin' cane, Hand me down my walkin' cane, Gonna leave on the midnight train, 'Cause all my sins are taken away! (scat) Wish I'd listened what my momma said, I wish I'd listened what my momma said. If I'd listened what my momma said I'd have been sleepin' on a feather bed, 'Cause all my sins are taken away, My sins are taken, taken away, My sins are taken, taken away! My aunt Maddy, she told me not to go, Aunt Maddy told me not to go! My aunt Maddy, she told me not to go, Aunt Maddy told me not to go! (scat) Now she's listenin' on the radio! Down my walkin' cane, Hand me down my walkin' cane, Hand me down my walkin' cane, Gonna leave on the midnight train, 'Cause all my sins are taken away! (scat) All my sins are taken, (scat) All my sins are taken away! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2015)
