Running Mad Blues

This song is by Charley Jordan and appears on the compilation album Charley Jordan Vol. 1 (1930-1931) (1992).

There's two freight trains, baby, runnin' side by side
There's the two freight trains, they's runnin' side by side
And you got my little old baby, now I guess you satisfied

These blues I've got, babe, Lord, they're about to run me mad
I say these blues I've got, babe, they about to run me mad
You know, they're the worst old feelin', Lord, as ever I ever had

And my mama told me when I was only seven years old
And my mama told me when I was only seven years old
She said, "When you get one year older, I'm gonna set your little old clothes outdoors."

I can read and write, baby, you know I can spell your name
I say I can read and write, babe, you know I can spell your name
If you don't write to me, I'm gonna write to you just the same

Lord, Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Lord, Lord, Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Babe, I swear I want dollar and a quarter with every cents your daddy draws

Don't you let your baby know every place you go
Don't you let your baby know every place you go
Because she'll raise so much sand that you can't go back there no more

When I come home this mornin', my baby asked where I, had I been
When I come home this mornin', my baby asked where I, had I been
Don't you know, I was scared to tell her 'cause I wanted to go back there again
