It Makes No Difference Now

Transcribed from vocals by Viola McCoy, recorded April 14, 1924,
From Viola McCoy: Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Volume 2: 1924-1926; Document Records DOCD-5417.

You used to say that you were going away,
And when you'd start, I'd come and beg you to stay;
That time has passed,
It could not last;
Do just as you may;
One time I used to sit around and pout,
Just like a crazy little fool, no doubt,
But I've arranged a mighty change,
Leave me now, and you will hear me shout:

It makes no difference now,
It makes no difference now;
I used to think nobody else could take your place,
But I found another daddy with more style and grace!
So I'm not singin' the blues!
You can go wherever you choose!
I don't want to be bold, but I'm getting you told,
'Cause it makes no difference now, I mean,
It makes no difference now!

Remember last winter, when you bought my hat,
You raised all kinds of fuss about that;
You even took the clothes that you bought for me,
And you gave them to a gal called Sally Lee.
She was lopsided, cross-eyed, and bowlegged, too,
And she looked just like one booglyboo,
So I found myself a daddy that isn't rough,
And believe me now, babe, I'm gonna strut my stuff!

It makes no difference now,
It makes no difference now;
There is one thing I want you to understand,
Got the world in a jug, got the stopper in my hand!
I'm not singin' the blues!
You can go wherever you choose!
I don't want to be bold, but I'm getting you told,
'Cause it makes no difference now, I mean,
It makes no difference now!
