Laid My Cards on the Table

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 7 1942-1949 (1993).

I laid my cards on the table, still you wouldn't give me a break
I laid my cards on the table, still you wouldn't give me a break
But some day baby, you poor heart is sure going to ache

Baby you made my poor heart bleed, and then you said I ain't fit
Baby you made my poor heart bleed, and then you said I ain't fit
And you have found someone else, and you want to call it quit

Baby some day baby, I know things are going to turn
Baby some day baby, I know things are going to turn
And that one‑sided love, is going to make your poor heart burn

And I will look out of my window, and see you on the street
And I will look out of my window, and see you on the street
And that load your poor heart will be carrying, will knock you off of your feet

'Cause you stayed away all summer, and didn't come home till fall
'Cause you stayed away all summer, baby and didn't come home till fall
Now you are too late baby, 'cause someone else in your stall
