I know most of the lyrics, but there's about a line in each verse that I can't make out. I have some guesses, but they don't seem to make any sense, and I'd like to be sure.
Thanks very much!

Sweet man, sweet man
??? make your ???
Sweet man, sweet man
??? make your ???
And I would come to see you
But your woman has got me barred

She ???
She ???
And I just can't keep from crying
She ???
She ???
And I just can't keep from crying
And if he don't come back
I will lose my worried mind

He is a rambler
He is a rambler
And he is ???
He is a rambler
He is a rambler
And he is ???
And I know he was a rambler
When he got that train to ???

I'm going to find him
I'm going to find him
With my (smokey/smoking?) .45
I'm going to find him
I'm going to find him
With my (smokey/smoking?) .45
'Cause you know I love that man
???

He's gone, he's gone
And he's forever on my mind
He's gone, he's gone
And he's forever on my mind
And I want to see my man
'Cause he's so good and kind

Here's what I think I hear, at The Red Hot Jazz Archive:


SWEET MAN, SWEET MAN
As sung by Lucille Bogan, 1934:

1. Sweet man, sweet man,
What make your ??? get so hard?
Sweet man, sweet man,
What make your ??? get so hard?
And I would come to see you,
But your woman is got me barred.

2. He caught the Frisco. He caught the Frisco,
And I just can't keep from cryin'.
He caught the Frisco. He caught the Frisco,
And I just can't keep from cryin',
And if he don't come back,
I will lose my worried mind.

3. He is a rambler. He is a rambler,
And he is not satisfied.
He is a rambler. He is a rambler,
And he is not satisfied,
And I know he was a rambler
When he caught that train to ride.

4. I'm going to find him. I'm going to find him
With my smoky .45.
I'm going to find him. I'm going to find him
With my smoky .45,
'Cause you know I love that man,
And he's so hard to find.

5. He's gone. He's gone,
And he's forever on my mind.
He's gone. He's gone,
And he's forever on my mind,
And I want to see my man
'Cause he's so good and kind.
