Yes I have checked digi trad. I have googled and cannot find lyrics (would like guitar chords as well) for this.

Thought perhaps the song might go by another title, but I have no idea what.

Here's a set. In singing she cuts some of the words short eg carry is often carr'.

Mick




WHERE IS MY GOOD MAN AT

Lord I wonder where's my good man at x2
He left here this morning didn't carry nothing but his hat

He left his suits all hanging on the rack x2
He left here this morning didn't carry nothing but his hat

Lord I wonder where's my good man at x2
He left here this morning didn't carry nothing but his hat.

If only could get my good man back x2
He left here this morning didn't carry nothing but his hat

Lord I wonder where's my good man at x2
He left here this morning carrying nothing but his hat

<guitar break>

<Tune to nonsense syllables - Da da...>

Lord if only get my good man back x2
He left here this morning didn't carry nothing but his hat.

VT - I don't think half an hour counts as quick in these parts! I forgot you asked for the chords. It's a basic blues progression; here it is in G. (It's in Ab on the recording I have).

Mick




(G)Lord I wonder where's my good man at
Lord I (C)wonder where's my good man (G)at
He left here this (D)morning didn't (C)carry nothing but his (G)hat
