Why Don't You Come Home Blues-Furry Lewis

INTRO

Pearlee, why don't you come home?
Pearlee, why don't you come home?
I ain't had no lovin', gal, since you've been gone

My Mama told me when I was a child
Mama told me when I was a child
"Good time now, trouble after awhile."

If I had listened to what my Mother said
I had a-listened, what my Mother said
I wouldn't been here, treated this-a-way

I'd rather see my coffin, rollin' from my door
D'rather see my coffin, rollin' from my door
Than to hear my good girl, says, "I don't want you no more."

I dreamt last night the world were cavin' in
Dreamt last night the world were cavin' in
Wasn't nothin' at all, my girl comin' home again

I feel like jumpin' from the treetop to the ground
Feel like jumpin' from the treetop to the ground
Girl I love, she sure done put me down

I wished I had've died, babe, when I were young
Wished I had've died, babe, when I were young
I would not have, this here race to run
