Subject: Hurry Home Sweet Momma
From: Jerry Rasmussen
Date: 06 Aug 02 - 07:59 AM

I was sitting around at home last night, and remembered an old Jimmie Rodgers that I used to sing. Somewhere, I still have the recording on a 45 r.p.m. but when we moved last year, things got misplaced and I can't find it. I can remember most of the words, but I'm sure I'm messing them up. I tried Digitrad Search, and tried to wade through the eight thousand listings in Google that include these words. I've never successfully found anything on Google, yet I see others on Mudcat quickly finding stuff. I wonder if I'm doing it wrong.

Is there any Catter who knows this song? Here are the lyrics, the best that I can remember them..

I'm feeling blue, and lonely too, ever since you went away
My poor heart yearns for you, .... ... ... .... day
Since you're gone, the stars refuse to shine, you are always on my mind
I'm so alone........

But, there'll come a time you'll miss me, and you'll be blue
There'll come a time, you'll want me, no one else will do, Sweet Mamma
Your heart will yearn for my loving, then you'll know that you were wrong
And maybe then you'll sigh, or even sometimes cry
But then, I'll be long gone, sweet Momma
Hurry home or I'll be gone
Hurry home, or I'll Be Gone

From what I remember, the title of the song is Hurry Home Sweet Momma, or I'll be Gone. I'll go back and try Hurry Home Or I'll Be Gone.

From this page

: SWEET MAMA HURRY HOME OR I'LL BE GONE

: (Jack Neville)

: I've been so blue and lonesome, too,
: Ever since you went away
: My poor heart yearns for you both night and day;
: Since you're gone the stars don't seem to shine,
: You are always on my mind,
: I'm so unhappy for I want just you.

: But there'll come a time
: you'll miss me and you'll be blue;
: There'll come a time you'll want me,
: no one else will do (Sweet mama),
: Your heart will long for my loving
: Then you'll see that you were wrong;
: And I know you will sigh and maybe sometimes cry,
: But then I'll be long gone, Sweet mama,
: Hurry home or I'll be gone.
: Hurry home or I'll be gone.

: You won my heart fright from the start,
: I gave all my love to you,
: I never dreamed that you could be untrue;
: You have ways of loving all your own,
: That's what made me leave my happy home,
: But now you're gone and I'm left all alone.

: But there'll come a time
: you'll miss me and you'll be blue;
: There'll come a time you'll want me,
: no one else will do (Sweet mama),
: Your heart will long for my loving
: Then you'll see that you were wrong;
: And I know you will sigh and maybe sometimes cry,
: But then I'll be long gone, Sweet mama,
: Hurry home or I'll be gone.
: Hurry home or I'll be gone.

Regarding Google searching.

I didn't know the song, so at first I tried just putting the title into google. I got 7440 Results

So next, I put "quotes" around the phrase. This means that Google will only search for that exact phrase rather than any pages that include the search terms anywhere in the text. I got zero results

I assumed that you must have got the title wrong, so I decided to enter a phrase from the lyrics you'd provided. I chose "Hurry home or I'll be gone" (guessing that you'd probably have remembered a repeated chorus phrase correctly)

Sticking that phrase (again in quotes) into Google and got these results Much more like it!

With only 41 results, I could have searched through them all, but tried a shortcut (that sometimes - but sometimes doesn't work) I added 'lyrics' to my search terms.

So my final search was: "Hurry home or I'll be gone" lyrics

Four results, at least two of which lead straight to the lyrics.

Hope that helps.

Ed

Thanks for teaching me how to fish, Ed! And I'll keep the Jimmie Rodgers site too, Stewie. Now I think that I'll grab my guitar and finally learn the whole song. :-)

Jim Kweskin and the Jog Band do a Hurry home sweet daaaddy, and don't you take your time, if you wait too loooooooong, your mama will be gone... very similar idea, yet totally different verses.

Yeah, I think I have that already, Mrrzy. Thanks for the reminder. It is a different song, similar idea. Jimmie did several songs with full orchestra which have a very different feel than his solo guitar work... I love it all.
