My Black Name

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Smokes Like Lightning (1963).

I can hear my black name ringing
Oh, hurryin' down the line
I can hear my black name ringing
Oh, hurryin' down the line

Whoa, she got another man now
Little girl won't pay me no mind
You know that woman said that she loved me
But now I believe she was lyin'

Yes, she said that she loved me
But now I believe she's lyin'
Whoa, I don't believe she love me no more, Spider
I believe I'm driving away my turn

Whoa, that woman done quit me
And I'm just about to lose my mind
That black woman done quit me
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Whoa yeah, my black name was ringing
Oh, hurrying down the line
