Poor Boy A Long Ways From Home-Barbecue Bob (Robert Hicks)
Spanish tuning, with a slide

I'm a poor boy, I'm a long ways from home
I'm a poor boy, I'm a long ways from home
I'm a poor boy, ain't got nowhere to go

Ain't got nowhere, lay my worried head
Honey, I ain't got nowhere, t' lay my worried head
I ain't got nowhere, lay my worried head
Sometime, I'd soon to be dead

Honey, tell me, what you gonna do
Please tell me, what you gonna do
Please tell me, what you gonna do

I done left my brown, standin' in the door
Left my brown, standin' in the door
I left my brown, standin' in the door
"Why'n't you ring?", she said, "You're not 'bliged to go."

I'm the poor old boy, stood on the road and cried
I'm the poor old boy, stood on the road and cried
I didn't have no blues, just couldn't be satisfied

Honey, give me long long distance phone
Now, give me long distance phone
Honey, give me long distance phone
I wanta hear from my sweet mama back home

Uh, Central, ring six-oh-nine
Central, ring six-oh-nine
I wanta hear from that bob-haired gal of mine
