16. TAKING YOUR PLACE

Now tell me, baby, how come you do me this-a-way?
Oh, tell me, baby, how come you do me this-a-way?
Ah, you go off to stay in the morning, and you stays all day.

I love you, baby. I didn't know that you would do me this-a-way.
Yes, I love you, baby. I didn't know you'd do me this-a-way.
How can I love you, mama, when you goes off and stay away?

Now, you done throwed me, baby, until you have throwed me away.
Yes, you done throwed me, baby, until you done throwed me away.
Now someone else done come, mama, ah, to take your place.

[As recorded by the Memphis Jug Band, 1929, Will Shade, vocalist.]
