I’M GONNA LEAVE YOU ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN (possibly adapted by Jordan from William Weldon / Roy Jacobs) 1942 (Louis Jordan 1942) *This Blues classic is partially similar to I’M GONNA MOVE TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN elsewhere in this ILP database, also done by Louis Jordan. Also sung by: B. B. King Jazz Gillum & John Davis Betty Hall Jones I'm gonna leave you baby, right out here on the outskirts of town I'm gonna leave you baby, right out here on the outskirts of town I brought you out here momma but you won't stop foolin' round. I cut out my iceman, I bought me a Frigidair Now you let the serviceman take you everywhere I'm gonna leave you baby, right out here on the outskirts of town I ain't gonna stand for nobody who always hangin' round. I brought my own groceries, I brought `em every day Now you're lettin' that grocery boy, lay up in my hay I'm gonna leave you baby, right out here on the outskirts of town I ain't gonna stand for nobody who always hangin' round. I see you wigglin' and gigglin', but I'm as mad as I can be Now we got seven children and none of `em look like me I'm gonna leave you baby, right out here on the outskirts of town I ain't gonna stand for nobody who always hangin' round.
