Subject: Lyr Req: I ain't got no lovin' baby now

I recall learning barre chords to play a bluesy song circa 1964. I can recall the beginning and the chords, but much of it has escaped me. I thought perhaps John Hammond Jr. was the artist.

Well my baby packed her suitcase
And she started on that train.
She was a married woman
But I loved her just the same.

And I ain't got no lovin' baby now
No I ain't got no lovin' baby now

The song is HEART IN SORROW by Brownie McGhee

1. My babe packed her suitcase and she started to the train.
She's a married woman, but I love her just the same

CHORUS: Don't you know that I ain't got no lovin' baby now.
(Yes, yes) You know that I ain't got no lovin' baby now.
Well, it's I—I ain't got no lover now.
My heart's in sorrow and the tears keep falling down.

2. That ol' lowdown fireman and that ol' cruel engineer.
That ol' dirty conductor took my baby 'way from here.

CHORUS: Don't you know that I ain't got no lovin' baby now. etc.

3. I started to write a letter and I laid the pencil down,
My heart's got sorrow and the tears come rolling down.

CHORUS: That's the reason I ain't got no lovin' baby now. etc.

I did not listen and check this for accuracy

Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INZSqQDARPM

I listened and checked now, and they were basically right

They repeat the chorus another time at the end, but the words are essentially right

Thank you cnd. Since I discovered both John Hammond and Brownie McGhee on the same record, Blues At Newport, Brownie is probably my source for it as well.

Always so wonderful to find folks who love and appreciate the Masters! Brownie and Sonny will always be beyond fabulous. <3
