RED MOUNTAIN BLUES H Troy as rec by Bessie Smith Nov 20th 1925 New York Goin' around Red Mountain in the mornin', Goin' around Red Mountain sure's you born, And if you never, never see me again, Remember me when I'm gone. Now sit down and write a letter for me, And send it straight to the man I love; Just tell him, when you find him, I'll be gone, A-roamin' the road above! Down in the valley, my head was hangin' low, My poor heart was achin', he hurtin' so! Fortune teller told me what I had to do; Get myself some snake rue, sold right in the tube. Got myself some snake rue, xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx Use them both together, I know what they will do. Took some in my pocket, put some in my booze; That don't make him love me, I'll xxxx right in the tube! Goin' around Red Mountain in a hurry, I'm goin' where I can change my mind, And if I can't get rid of all my worries, Then I'll be gone for a long long time!
