Evil Man Blues

    (Lil Johnson?)

Transcribed from Lil Johnson, recorded July 16, 1935.
From Lil Johnson, Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Vol. 1: 23 April 1929 - 22 April 1936; Document Records DOCD-5307.

My man is so evil, and he treats me so unkind.
My man is so evil, and he treats me so unkind.
I try to love him, but can't get it in my mind.

Just as sure as the stars shine in the heaven above,
Just as sure as the stars shine in the heaven above,
Life ain't worth livin' if you ain't with the one you love.

I want a man I can love every day,
I want a man I can love every day,
Sometimes I get worried, he'll drive my blues away.

Spoken: Take it easy, greasy! You got a long way to slide!

Everyday, daddy, you roll 'cross my mind,
Everyday, daddy, you roll 'cross my mind,
You is so evil, you'll never change your mind.
