Heptune presents:

I Lost my Gal from MemphisPhoto of Andy Kirk


Transcribed from Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds of Joy, vocal by Billy Massey; recorded April 29, 1930.
From Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds of Joy 1929-1931; The Chronogical Classics 655.

I lost my gal from Memphis,
She's gone to Caroline;
I know just who she went with,
A dear old pal of mine.

I ought to hop a choo-choo,
I know I ought to go,
I'd love to find my baby,
But my funds are awful low.

My gal, why did she leave me?
Sweet gal, I'm missing her so!

Oh, there ain't no gal in Memphis
As good as her around,
I've lost my gal from Memphis,
That's why I feel lowdown.
