Divin' Duck Blues - Sleepy John Estes
Self-accompanied, with Jab Jones, piano and Yank Rachell, mandolin

Now if the river was whiskey, and I was a divin' duck
Now if the river was whiskey, I was a divin' duck
I would dive on the bottom, never would come up

Don't never take a married woman to be your friend
Don't never take, married woman to be your friend
She will get all your money, give it to her other man

Now, a married woman always been my crave
Now, a married woman always been my crave
Now a married woman gon' carry me to my grave

Now ain't it hard to love some else, then?
Now ain't it hard to love some else, then?
You can't get her when you want her, have to use her when you can

Now the sun gon' shine on my back door someday
Now the sun gonna shine on my back door some day
Now the wind gonna rise gonna blow my blues away

Now I went to the railroad, looked up at the sun
Now I went to the railroad, looked up at the sun
If the train don't hurry gon' be some walkin' done
