BY MYSELF
Big Bill Broonzy

I'm on my way around the world
When I get back I'll have diamonds and pearls
All by myself, all by myself
I don't need nobody help me, I can do it all by myself

Got locked up in jail; that's no hanging crime
Now I'm on the farm; I'm doing time
All by myself, all by myself
I don't need nobody help me, I can do it all by myself

I got a wife, I got fourteen kids
I ain't ashamed, don't try to keep it hid
All by myself, all by myself
I don't nobody to help me, I can do it all by myself

I got a house full of women, they all full of pep
I can take care of them I don't need no help
All by myself, all by myself
I don't need nobody help me now, I can do it all by myself

Oh, cross-eyed Sue told old pop-eyed Jim
Call Uncle Sam, so's I can take care of them
All by myself, All by myself
I don't need nobody help me, I can do it all by myself

Now the Jack and the mule runnin' neck and neck
The Jack told the mule, "I got you son, what you bet?"
All by myself, all by myself
I don't need nobody else I can do it all by myself

I haven't got a copy here to listen to, but from memory I think that should be:

Cross-eyed Sue told Popeyed Jim
All Uncle Sam's soldiers, I can take care of them
