As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW with Willard Robinson's Deep River Orch., New York, March 1928: I'm like a weeping willow Weeping on my pillow For years and years There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears Down and down he dragged me Like a fiend he nagged me For years and years There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears Although I may be blue Still I'm through I must tell him goodbye Rather than have that man Gonna lay me down and just die Brokenhearted sisters Aggravatin' misters Lend me your ears There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears ******************** As recorded by LIBBY HOLMAN, New York, February 1928: Shaking like a leaf on a tree That's coming loose from the stem Shaking like a leaf on a tree Because I'm coming loose from my man I'm like a weeping willow Weeping on my pillow For years and years There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears What's the use of tryin' What's the use of cryin' For years and years There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears Although I may be blue Still I'm through Gonna tell him goodbye Rather than have that man Gonna lay me down and just die Brokenhearted sisters Aggravatin' misters Lend me your ears There ain't no sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears One time I met a gent Broke and bent He was singin' the blues Brought him in and just as sure as sin Walked off with my hubby's new shoes, shoe-shoe-shoes Rather than be his'un I would go to prison And give three cheers There ain't no sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet man That's worth the salt of my tears No how!
