RATION BLUES (Antonio Casey / Collenane Clark / Louis Jordan) Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five - 1943 Baby, baby, baby What's wrong with Uncle Sam? He's cut down on my sugar Now he's messin' with my ham I got the ration blues, blue as I can be Poor me, I've got those ration blues I got to live on fourty ounces Of any kind of meat Those fourty little ounces Gotta last me all the week I got to cut down on my jelly It takes sugar to make it sweet I'm gonna steal all your jelly, baby And rob you of your meat I got the ration blues, blue as I can be Poor me, I've got those ration blues I like to wake up in the morning With my jelly by my side Since rationing started, baby You just take your stuff and hide They reduced my meat and sugar And rubber's disappearing fast You can't ride no more with poppa 'Cause Uncle Sam wants my gas I got the ration blues, blue as I can be Poor me, I've got those ration blues (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2007) (Contributed by - September 2007)
