Mother's Blues-Leadbelly
Leadbelly, vocal and guitar in Spanish tuning

INTRO (Spoken: These blues, the little chillun made about somebody that's goin' away. And that's sad. And that gives you the blues.)

I went down to the freight depot,
When that train comes a-rollin' by
I wave my hand, at my mama, and then I looked
Goin' down that railroad track

She's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
And no cryin', won't bring her back
She's the onliest mother that I ever did love
Goin' down the railroad track

It's, I went down to the freight depot
And I looked up on the sign
Thinkin' about the onliest mother that I had in this world
And I couldn't help from, hangin' my head and cryin'

SOLO (Spoken: Uh-huh)

It was "Fare you well.", It was "Fare you well."
And she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
She's gone, went down that lonesome railroad track
And she left me, here to sing this song
