Thread Name: Origin: Alabama Bound & Don't You Leave Me Here
Subject: RE: origin and lyr: Alabama Bound
Does anyone have a link or lyrics to: "Don't You Leave Me Here" by Jelly Roll Morton? I believe this was from c1901.
Papa Jackson's version is standard lyrics. It's probably where the "Preacher Got Drunk" versions come from. Traditional ballad has it under Alabama Bound (I) (Waterbound II) that can't be right.
What do you think? They don't even mention the "Preacher Got Drunk and Throwed His Bible Down."
