Little Sarah-Yank Rachell
Yank, vocal and mandolin, Sleepy John Estes, guitar in C position, standard tuning, Jab Jones, piano
NOTE: Yank sings "faro" rather than "Sarah" throughout the song. The title is a misapprehension of his lyrics.

SOLO

And I got up this morning, I lied all in my room
And I got up this morning, I lied all in my room
And I looked behind me and I found my faro gone

If a man don't never study, ah, you would never have no blues
If a man wouldn't study, you would never have no blues
But you get to thinkin' 'way back, the way your baby used to do

I got a little faro, she weigh about ninety pounds
I've got a little faro, she weigh about ninety pounds
Now, but her mama and papa, they sure don't 'low me 'round

I'm gon' sing this song, baby, I ain't gonna sing no more
I'm gonna sing this song, baby, I ain't gon' sing no more
I'm gon' hang this mandolin under my shoulder, right down Front Street I'll go

I can hear that old train comin', ah, it must-a be comin' after me
I can hear that old train a-comin, must-a be comin' after me
And I'm gon' sit right back home, to my same old used-to-be
