Nobody Knows the Way I Feel 'Dis Mornin'

Transcribed from Rosa Henderson and the Choo Choo Jazzers, vocals by Rosa Henderson, recorded 2/19/25.
From Rosa Henderson: Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, vol. 3 (1924-1926), Document Records, DOCD-5403.

I woke up this mornin' out of my dream,
I felt so mistreated, I had to scream,
Just thinking about that mean man of mine,
I don't know why he treats me so unkind.

Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin',
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin',
If I only had my way,
The graveyard is the place my man would lay,
Ain't nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'.

I pawned everything that I had this mornin',
I pawned everything that I had this mornin',
I pawned my ring, gold watch and chain,
I would have pawned myself but I felt ashamed,
Ain't nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'.

I even hate to hear your name this mornin',
I even hate to hear your name this mornin',
I even hate to hear your name,
I can kill you quicker than an express train,
Ain't nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'.
