Never Let Your Left Hand Know What Your Right Hand Do

    (Lil Johnson?)

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

I had the blues last night, I've got 'em again today,
My man told me he was going away.

Trouble, trouble, is all I can see,
Looks like my man has turned his back on me.

Just let me tell you what your friends will do:
Spit in your face and then they'll talk about you.

Me and my girlfriend, went out for a little run,
When she see my man, she told him what I had done.

Bring me a pint of whiskey, and a bottle of beer.
If I get drunk, I sure don't care.

Spoken: Harmonize me, Daddy! Oh, run into me, but don't hurt me!

Take me back, baby; try me one more time;
I'd do everything to satisfy your mind.

Listen, people, to what I'm telling you:
Don't let your left hand know what your right hand do.
