Man of My Own

This song is by Ruth Willis, features Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation The Rough Guide to Blues Women (2016).

I went down 18th Street, didn't have-a no hat
Asking all the women where was my man at

I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
Tryin' to find a man of my own

I'm gonna grab me a train, ride it till it stops
Not gonna stay 'round here and be your stumblin' block

I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
Tryin' to find a man of my own

Woke up this mornin' at the break of day
Looked on my pillow where my man used to lay

So I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
Tryin' to find a man of my own

My suitcase is packed, trunk already home
So it won't be long 'fore your mama be gone

So I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
Tryin' to find a man of my own

You caused my heart to weep, you caused it to moan
So what's this mean ol' train I'm on?

So I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
I'm leavin' you, baby
Tryin' to find a man of my own
