A check to this transcription. Bertha Chippie Hill recorded more than one track of this blues. This is the one in the Yazoo CD I Can't Be Satisfied, vol.2. R

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be always
The sun goin' shine
In my back door someday

I'm all alone at midnight
And the lamps are burnin' low
Never had so much trouble
In my life before

Troublin' love done quit me
And it sure do grieve my mind
Some days I feel like living
Sometimes I feel like dyin'

I'm gonna lay my head
On some lonesome railroad line
And let the 2:19 train
Satisfy my mind

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
But I won't be always
The sun goin' shine
In my back door someday

Roberto, are you planning to issue a song-book?? Or what's the purpose you need all these (corrected) lyrics for?

Interested, Manfred

On a quick listen, the only things I heard differently were:

v3:
Trouble in love done quit me       (or Troublin' love...)
And it sure do grieve my mind

I'm a bit busy now, but I'll have a close listen when I get a chance.

Had another listen and a couple of minor changes I think.

In the first and last verses I think it's:

  The sun's gonna shine

And in v4 I think it's

  And let the 2:19 train

And that seems to be it!


Mick

Manfred, I think that words and notes in songs are both important, if I could, I'd try to get not only all the words, but also every note a singer actually sings and plays in the recordings I like the best. Besides, English is a foreign language for me, and getting the words is necessary, to better appreciate the songs. I am not a singer, the only singing I do is by myself, but I have a sort of a songbook, not to be issued: with the transcriptions of more than 1.200 recordings of the "Child Ballads", a growing collection of American, English, Scottish, Irish traditional songs. In the case of America, there is also the blues, especially the pre-war recordings, that I'm interested in. The only thing next to an issueing project I have is to translate into Italian an anthology of the Child Ballads. I agree with Bloom, the literature critic, when he writes that these ballads are among the best poetry in English, but a reader doesn't often have a chance to know them. In Italy, we had a couple of anthologies decades ago, with some of the Ballads from Child. I'd like to translate some of the Child ballads into Italian, but not as they are in Child, but taken from the treasure of recordings of these ballads made in the last century. Most from the tradition, and some from the so called revival. But it is hard to find time to dedicate to any project. I'm a trade-unionist, too little time for songs. Best wishes. Roberto

Anyone still here after seven years? It's Georgia White who sings "my good man done quite me". It's probably "Troublin' love" - but if you hear the first (acoustic) version, which has Thelma la Vizza singing, still with Richard Jones, the writer of the song on the piano, the words are totally different. For me, there's nothing to touch this version and Bertha Hill's singing, but that's just opinion.

From Brownie McGee...

"I'm going down to the river,
gonna take a Rocking chair,
if the blues don't get me
Gonna rock away down there"

Cheers
