Jumpin' and Shoutin' Blues

This song is by Garfield Akers and appears on the compilation When the Levee Breaks: Mississippi Blues, Rare Cuts 1926-41 (2007).

Lord, I know my baby sure going to jump and shout
Lord, I know my baby sure going to jump and shout
When the train get here I come a-rolling out

Lord, I tell it wasn't no need of mama trying to be so kind
I tell it wasn't no need of mama trying to be so kind
Ah, you know you don't love me, you ain't got me on your mind

Mmm, you ain't got me on your mind
Mmm, you ain't got me on your mind
And it's what is in the need of baby trying to be so kind

Mmm, tried to treat her right
Mmm, tried to treat her right
But you started with another man and stayed out every day and night

Says I ain't going down this big road by myself
Says I ain't going down this big road by myself
If I can't get you, mama, I'm going to get somebody else

Mmm, what you want your babe to do
Mmm, what you want your babe to do
Says I know it's something, gal, it ain't no use
