FRIENDLESS BLUES
As recorded by Big Bill Broonzy, 1934.

Look like ev'rybody, mama, got a friend but me.
Lord, it look like ev'rybody, mama, got a friend but me.
I am a poor boy, baby; I'm as good as I can be.

Baby, when I'm happy, my friends are happy, too.
Mama, when I'm happy, my friends are happy, too.
So now I have fell in bad luck; mama, what am I going to do?

When my mother died, what my friends all did say?
Mama, when my mother died, what did my friends all say?
They said old Big Bill is motherless, and no place to lay his head.

Babe, I'm motherless and I'm fatherless, sister and brotherless too.
Babe, I'm motherless and I'm fatherless; I'm sister and brotherless too.
Babe, and today I'm so blue, baby, I don't know what to do.
