Subject: Lyr Add: DON'T YOU LEAVE ME HERE (JellyRoll Morton
DON'T YOU LEAVE ME HERE
Version of Alabama Bound- Jelly Roll Morton vocals
(Jazz intro with horns; piano vamps chords on the beat)
Don't you leave me here,
Don't you leave me here.
If you just must go sweet mama,
Leave a dime for beer.
If the rooster crows
And the hen ran around.
She said "If you want my fricassee
You got to runs me down."
(Jazz solos with horns to the end)
