Album: The Essential by Allegro Classic Blues by Document Records CBL 200003 Transcriber: Awcantor@aol.com You can misuse me, baby But you can't when I go home You misuse me, baby But you can't when I go home I got somebody there To make you leave me alone I done give ya all my money Now, baby what mo' can I do? Done give ya all my money Baby, what mo' can I do? You said you was a good girl But you just won't be true Spoken: Now, this man had to give this girl all his money. He had a wife and a sweetheart, too. And his sweetheart he give all his money. At last one day he done got tired and got broke And he looked at her, he said 'I'll give you all my money inside the box but I can go home. I got somebody that'll makes you leave me alone. And he didn't have to give her no money, she was pretty good lookin'. He looked at her. Sail on, sail on, pretty gal, sail on Sail on, hoo-hoo, sail on pretty gal, sail on You gon' keep on sailin' And you'll loo-ose yo' happy home Come and park down here and talk to me, baby A-just before you sail away Park down here and talk to me, baby 'Fore you sail away When you get back there You may have no place to stay Lord, you know you didn't want me When you layed down 'cross my bed Drinkin' all that good whiskey Talkin' all out yo' head Babe, you know you didn't want me When you layed down 'cross my bed Takin' all my high tax whiskey Talkin' all out yo' head.
