Subject: Lyrics wanted, Uncle Dave Macon tunes
From: Bill Thomas, bthomas@pol.org
Date: 23 Mar 99 - 12:53 AM

I'm looking for the lyrics to a couple of tunes I've heard sung by Uncle Dave Macon, "The Morning Blues" or "The Mourning Blues", and "Kissing on the Sly". Anybody got them or suggestions about where to look?

It's definitely the same song, although it looks like it's been folk-processed a bit. I transcribed this from a sound sample:

... falls in love with his little turtledove
He will linger all around under her jaw.
He will kiss her for her mother, a sister or a brother
Till her father comes and kicks him from the door.
Pulls a pistol from his pocket, and vows he will cock it
And blow away his giddy brain.
His ducky ....

Sorry. That is the same thing Joe posted in 1999. My apologies.

Uncle Dave's 'I've got the mourning blues' varies considerably from the Kweskin 'Morning blues' linked above and his 'Kissin' on the sly' bears only a passing resemblance to the one linked. I will post the lyrics to both in the 'ADD: Uncle Dave Macon lyrics' thread within the next couple of days.
