Hi folks

I am wondering if there is anyone who knows the words to the Huddie LEADBELLYsong called "BLUES I GOT MAKE A NEW BORN BABY CRY"

This song (#47 B) had been recorded in February 1935 at Wilton CT.

Any help will be welcome

Regards and good Sunday
Claude

Hello, biloute.

I cannot find the lyrics. I'm guessing that unless someone knows and posts the lyrics, your alternative would be to purchase the mp3 and learn it from that.

The #47B is I think a reference to the Library of Congress number.

I'll make a stab at it later, but I gotta take a nap. I've had a long day of singing. It's almost impossible for me to understand it, so I imagine that Claude has it even worse since English is not his first language.
Can't find it in any songbooks, but it IS on one of the Library of Congress recordings.

Hi
This song comes from the album "Volume 2 1935 DOCD-5592" track 21
Released by "Document Record"
It is not the best LEADBELLY song and the sound reproduction is, by today's high fidelity-stereophonic standards, rather dim.

Here's my attempt at a transcription. Corrections, improvements, suggestions, and explanations are welcome!


BLUES I GOT MAKE A NEW-BORN BABY CRY
As sung by Leadbelly, on "Leadbelly: The Remaining Library of Congress Recordings, Vol. 2 – 1935" (Document Records, DOCD-5592)

1. Blues I got make a newborn baby cry.
Oh, Lordy, blues I got make a newborn baby cry.
I dreaded(?) Lord, that she was gonna die.

2. Sometimes I think, Lord, she's too good to die, good to die.
Sometimes I think my baby too good to die.
Oh, Lordy, I think my baby's too good to die.
Sometimes I think she ought to be buried alive.

3. I'm gwine 'o tell my baby 'bout how they show, how they show.
Gwine 'o tell my babe 'bout how they show.
Oh, Lordy, 'n 'o tell my babe 'bout how they show.
Gwine 'o tell my babe, it's a hell of a note.

4. I'm down in mind, worried mighty bad, mighty bad,
Down in mind, worried mighty bad.
I done told you my mind is worried mighty bad.
I done lost every woman I had.

5. Somebody's in town, Lord, playin' Lucy Lou, Lucy Lou.
Somebody's in town playin' that Lucy Lou.
Oh, Lordy, 'body's in town playin' that Lucy Lou.
How come you do me, honey, like you do, do, do?

Oh, Lordy!

6. When it rains in my kitchen, ain't doin' me no good, me no good.
Rains in my kitchen, ain't doin' me no good.
Oh, Lordy, it rains in the kitchen, an' it ain't doin' me no good.
Tryin' to find somebody to cut my ... wood.

7. Let me be your biscuit till your biscuit roller come, roller come,
Be your biscuit till your biscuit roller come.
I done tol' you, be your biscuit, your biscuit roller come.
I can roll more biscuit than the biscuit roller ever done.

8. Let me be your sidetrack till your mainline come, mainline come,
Be your sidetrack till your mainline come.
Oh, Lordy!
I can do more switchin' than your mainline ever done.

9. I'm gwine to Carmody, want me to bring you back, bring you back?
I'm gwine to town, what you want me to bring you back?
Oh, Lord!
I mean any old thing you think your baby lacks.

10. Let me be your hammer till your hammer comes, hammer comes,
Be your hammer till your hammer comes.
Oh, Lordy, be your hammer till your hammer comes.
I can nail more nails than hammer ever done.
