Shake 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.

I've got a man, he is nicely my size,
I've got a man, he is nicely my size,
He trembles in the middle, and shakes on every side.

My man quit me, for a gal named Ann,
My man quit me, for a gal named Ann,
Go on, honey, someday you will understand.

I never forget the things he done for me.
I never forget the things he done for me.
But that's all right, he will come back to me.

A dollar is a dollar, if it's a greenback bill,
A dollar is a dollar, if it's a greenback bill,
If he don't come back, some other man surely will.

The man I love, the man I hate to lose,
The man I love, the man I hate to lose,
That's why you hear me singin' those shake man blues.
