From WC Handy is a twelve-bar blues with the line, "Got no mo' home dan a dog," repeated three tines. Instead of an instrumental response, the quartet extended the word "dog" and added the exclamation "Lawd" at the end of the first and second line.

Got no mo' home dan a dog, Lawd
Got no mo' home dan a dog, Lawd
Got no mo' home dan a dog.

Performed in quartet WC Handy joined around 1890 in Florence, Alabama, it was adapted from a twelve-bar guitar blues.
