TB BLUES (Victoria Spivey) Victoria Spivey recorded 1926 Too late, too late, too late, too late, too late! It's too late, too late, too late, too late, too late! Well I'm on my way to Denver, and mama, mustn't I hesitate! TB's alright to have if your friends didn't treat you so low down, TB's alright to have if your friends didn't treat you so low down, Don't you ask 'em for no favours, they even stop comin' around! Mmmmmmmm, TB's killin' me! Mmmmmmmm, TB's killin' me! I'm like a prisoner, always wishin' he's free! When I was up on my feet, I could not walk down the street For the men's lookin' at me from my head to my feet! But ohhh now, the TB's killin' me, I want my body buried in the deep blue sea! Mmmmmmmm, Mmmmmmmm, The tuberculosis, the consumption's killin' me! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2017)
