MAIL MAN BLUES (Lee Morse) Lee Morse - 1924 Two weeks ago today my daddy went away And promised me to write every night Now you know how they are when they get away so far They just can’t treat a gal right Now all I do is sit and wait Thinkin' his love has turned to hate I got the mail man blues, just waitin’ for the news That my daddy’s comin’ home I've got the mail man blues Because my daddy don’t choose To let other women alone Ever since the day when he went away All I can do is just hope and pray That man I once knew And he’ll get the blues I've got the mail man blues When a woman gets blue She hang her head and cry, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo When a woman gets blue She hang her head and cry But when a man gets blue He catch a train and ride A man in Memphis One in Missouri too, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo A man in Memphis, oooh One in Missouri too My man in Memphis don’t love me Man in Missouri do Oh, a black-headed woman Make a good man leave this town, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo I said a black-headed woman Make a preacher lay his Bible down But a red-headed woman Make a boy spank his pappy down, yes, yes I got the mail man blues, oh, oh I ain’t got no good news (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
