Hi Claude
Please find below one of the lyrics

TELL ME WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU (recorded Hollywood October, 4, 1944)

Huddie LEADBELLY

Guitar intro

Tell me baby what on earth is wrong with you
Tell me baby what on earth is wrong with you
I just want to know pretty mama ooh lord how come you do me like you do

You caught the Santa Fe I caught the Sadie Lee
You caught the Santa Fe I caught the Sadie Lee
The first thing I ask you pretty mama ooh lord yeah how come ya quit for me

TP and the Morgan, it's runnin' side by side
TP and the Morgan, it is runnin' side by side
Ah if you can't catch the TP, ooh lord, the Morgan will let you ride.

Well it rained forty days and forty nights without stoppin'
Jonah got mad cause the rain kept a droppin'
Johah run got in the belly of a whale
Now is the time I'm gonna tell a great big tale
The whale began to wiggle and Jonah began to scratch
The whale threw Jonah in somebody's sweet potato patch

Tell me baby what on earth is wrong with you
I just want to know pretty mama ooh lord how come you do me like you do

You caught the Santa Fe I got on behind
You caught the Santa Fe I got on behind
Ah, brown skinned woman pretty mama, ooh lord, make a moon eyed man go blind.

Go blind for me now

Guitar break for ending

Hope it helps
Regards

Licette

Huddie LEADBELLY

Guitar intro

I'm goin' all a round the world, try to find my sweet Mary-ree
I'm goin' all a round the world, try to find my sweet Mary-ree
I'm gonna try to find out, oh Lord, what she's got that's sending me

You can tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen sweet Mary-ree?

You can tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen sweet Mary-ree?
She's got them big bow legs, oh Lord, an' she's all right with me

I'm gonna build me a home in de mountains, just for me and sweet Mary-ree

Gonna build me a home in de mountains, just for me and sweet Mary-ree
I swear there ain't but two of us now, oh, Lord, soon there may be three

She ain't no bumblebee she can sho' make some sweet honey for me
She ain't no bumblebee she can sho' make some sweet honey for me
I swear if I loose my mind wooo Lord I don't find sweet Mary-ree

Go ahead to find her for me now!

Guitar break


SWEET HONEY BEE

Big Bill Broonzy

I'm goin' all a round the world, I've got to find my sweet miss Bee
I'm goin' all a round the world, I've got to find my sweet miss Bee
Now I'm gonna try to find out, oh Lord, what she's got that's sending me


Tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen my sweet miss Bee?
Tell me, tell me, tell me, people, have you seen my sweet miss Bee?
I declare she's got them big bow legs, oh Lord, an' she's all right with me

Gonna build me a home in the mountains, I mean for me and my sweet miss Bee
Gonna build me a home in the mountains, just for me and my sweet miss Bee
Oh, there ain't but two of us now, oh, Lord, but soon there may be three

Can't nobody thrill me, nothin' like my sweet miss Bee

Hey Licette! Thank you a million times for the Tell Me Baby lyric. I've known that track since 1963, when I wore out the grooves on the Capitol album of the Hollywood sessions he's recorded in 1944, listening over and over learning how to play 12-string the way he did, or trying at least.   Just now, having acquired a big old ladder-braced 12-string like Huddie's, I've been working up many Lead Belly tunes for performance, and the only obstacle to my learning this one has been the third stanza. I never heard the TP and Morgan references clearly, so none of it made sense. It sure does now! As I write, it's late February 2018, so if at some future point you see this post, please accept my gratitude!   And visit my YouTube page if you like, where I will have posted my own humble rendition of this tune in homage to the master!
