20. STATE OF TENNESSEE BLUES

I'm worried now, and I won't be worried long. (2x)
If you don't come to see me, you can count the days I'm gone.

Some sweet day, I say, that's a while. (2x)
You having a good time now, but your troubles will be after while.

When I leave this town, don't put black crape on my door. (2x)
I'm won't be dead, baby, but I ain't coming back here no more.

I want all you women to strictly understand. (2x)
You don't want no trouble, please don't you worry my man.

I got a voice like a radio that broadcasts everywhere. (2x)
Ah, you can find the wild women wherever I broadcast it in the air.

I got a new way of spelling the dear old state of Tennessee.
I got a new way of spelling the state of Tennessee.
Double-E-double-R-O-double-E-double-N-O-C.

[As recorded by the Memphis Jug Band, 1927, Jennie Clayton and Will Shade, vocalists.]
