Dr. Doctor 02:57
The doctor say he can help me I don’t believe it’s true Ain’t got no medicine To take away the blues Doctor, doctor Won’t you help me please Well the blues Is an achin’ old heart disease
2.
Yes your man gets personal Won’t you have your fun Just come on to Friar Point, mama Barrelhouse all night long Yes I got women in Vicksburg Clean on into Tennessee But my Friar Point rider now Harps all over me I ain’t gonna state no color but Her front teeth are crowned with gold She got a mortgage on my body Lien on my soul Yes I’m goin’ down to Rosedale Gonna take my rider by my side We can still barrelhouse baby Cuz it’s on the riverside Well you can squeeze my lemon ‘Til the juice runs down my leg But I’m goin’ back to Chattanooga If I be rockin’ to my head

Killed that old gray mule Burned down that white man’s barn I didn’t mean no trouble I did not mean no harm Trouble in mind babe Well I been ‘buked and scorned Seems like I been ramblin’ Ramblin’ since the day I’s born Some people tell me That these old blues ain’t bad But it’s the worst old feelin’ That I most ever had Killed that old gray mule Burned down that white man’s barn I didn’t mean no trouble I did not mean no harm

Girl I want to Be your man Girl I want to But I can’t I gotta move I can’t slow down Girl I’m bound to Leave this town

Little woman I love She got the great long curly Great long curly hair But her mama and her papa, lord Sure don’t allow me there Sure don’t allow me Allow me there My little baby She’s in some far off In some distant land I can see her Findin’ her another man Yeah she’ll find her Another man My little baby She lives down Atlanta Lives down Atlanta way Would go to see her But the Greyhounds run ‘fore day Well they run now Run ‘fore day Little woman I love She got the great long curly Great long curly hair But her mama and her papa, lord Sure don’t allow me there Sure don’t allow me Allow me there
