SWEET MARY BLUES (recorded Hollywood October 27, 1944)

Huddie LEADBELLY

Guitar intro

I'm goin' all a round the world, try to find my sweet Mary-ree
I'm goin' all a round the world, try to find my sweet Mary-ree
I'm gonna try to find out, oh Lord, what she's got that's sending me

You can tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen sweet Mary-ree?

You can tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen sweet Mary-ree?
She's got them big bow legs, oh Lord, an' she's all right with me

I'm gonna build me a home in de mountains, just for me and sweet Mary-ree

Gonna build me a home in de mountains, just for me and sweet Mary-ree
I swear there ain't but two of us now, oh, Lord, soon there may be three

She ain't no bumblebee she can sho' make some sweet honey for me
She ain't no bumblebee she can sho' make some sweet honey for me
I swear if I loose my mind wooo Lord I don't find sweet Mary-ree

Go ahead to find her for me now!

Guitar break


SWEET HONEY BEE

Big Bill Broonzy

I'm goin' all a round the world, I've got to find my sweet miss Bee
I'm goin' all a round the world, I've got to find my sweet miss Bee
Now I'm gonna try to find out, oh Lord, what she's got that's sending me


Tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen my sweet miss Bee?
Tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen my sweet miss Bee?
I declare she's got them big bow legs, oh Lord, an' she's all right with me

Gonna build me a home in the mountains, I mean for me and my sweet miss Bee
Gonna build me a home in the mountains, just for me and my sweet miss Bee
Oh, there ain't but two of us now, oh, Lord, but soon there may be three

Can't nobody thrill me, nothin' like my sweet miss Bee
