NEW GULF COAST BLUES Clarence Williams 1925 as rec by Bessie Smith w Clarence Williams (piano) Nov 17th 1925 New York I done packed my clothes For to leave my woes; Goin' to celebrate With a smile upon my face! When that steamboat blows, Then that suffering goes! You hear me say goodbye, Because there's a reason why! The Gulf of Mexico goes into the Morville Bay, The Gulf of Mexico goes into the Morville Bay, I'm gonna let that cold stream o' water blow on my head some day! Tell me Mister Mailman, what is on your mind? Tell me Mister Mailman, what is on your mind? If you pass my door, look like you are blind! My eyes are brown, my teeth are pearly white, My eyes are brown, my teeth are pearly white, Because my skin is dark don't mean my heart ain't right! (Contributed by Peter Akers - May 2009)
