Subject: Lyr Add: T.B.'S GOT ME (Victoria Spivey)
Just to round it out, here's the third song in the trilogy:
T.B.'S GOT ME
As sung by Victoria Spivey
Here I lay a-cryin'.
Somethin' is on my mind.
It's midnight; I wonder where the nurse can be?
T.B.'s got me; all my friends have throwed me down.
T.B.'s got me an' all my friends have throwed me down,
But they treated me so nice when I's a favor[ite?] to run aroun'.
Aw, my poor lungs are hurtin' me so.
Mmm, my poor lungs are hurtin' me so.
I don't get no peace or comfort no matter where I go.
Lord, my good man don't want me no mo'.
Mmm, my good man don't want me no mo'.
Well, I wisht I was dead, an' in the land I'm doomed to go.
