When I Had Money

This song is by Big Bill Broonzy and appears on the compilation album Big Bill Broonzy Vol. 10 1940 (1967).

I listened to my baby, when she was telling me her dreams
I listened to my baby, when she was telling me her dreams
Lord everything now, baby would be peaches and cream

I had money on the horses, money on one two three
I had money on the horses, money on one two three
Now my water got muddy, and my horse run into a stream

Now when I had money, I had friends and a real good home
Now when I had money, I had friends and a real good home
Lord I done lost my money, babe my friends and home is gone

Lord my mother tried, Lord to make me do right
Lord my mother tried, Lord to make me do right
Lord I would stay drunk all day, baby and I wouldn't come home at night

Lord if I had a‑listened to my mother, Lord what she say
Lord if I had a‑listened to my mother, Lord what she say
Lord I would not have been here no, baby laying in this old hospital bed
