Heavy Hearted Blues

This song is by Darby & Tarlton and appears on the compilation American Pop: An Audio History - From Minstrels to Mojo: On Record, 1893-1946 (1998).

I woke up this morning with the blues all around my head
Lord Lord Lord, Lord Lord
Sing the blues boy
I woke up this morning with the blues all around my head
I dreamed last night the woman that I love was dead
Sing 'em Jimmy sing 'em
She came to the jail house this morning
Set down on her knees
Set came to the jail house this morning
Bent down on her knees
Come on boy
She said to the jail keeper "Won't you give me my good man back, give you please"
But the jail keeper looked to see my woman, "keeping here I will"
He sai "I'm sorry pretty woman but you man will be saying his last goodbye"
I'd rather be a sailor way on the deep blue sea
I'd rather be some sailor way on that deep blue sea
Than be a married way down in Georgia, when the baby setting on my knee
For a married man he sees ______ and a sailor man he's none
I'd rather be a sailorman be all single and be all by myself
