Thread Name: Origins: Empty Pocket Blues (Hays, Seeger, others)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Empty Pocket Blues (Lee Hays, Pete Seeger
Here's how I recall them:

My pocket's empty Baby,
Singing these blues for you.
My pocket's empty Baby,
You know I love you true.
Even my old kettle is whistlin' the blues for you.
Back again, I'm still (wailin'/waitin')
Back again with you.

I'm pretty sure there was another verse as well.
