Down South Blues


I'm going to the station,
Going to catch the fastest train that goes.
I'm a-going back South
Where the weather suits my clothes.

I'm going back South
If I wear out 99 pair of shoes;
'Cause I'm broken-hearted,
I've got those down South blues.

I was reared in the country
Where the snow it never fell.
I'm a-going back South,
If I don't do so well.

Oh my mama told me,
And my daddy told me too,
Don't you go off, honey,
Let those men make a fool out of you.
