Shotgun Blues

Shotgun Blues

Sonny Boy Williamson

You ought a heard my grandmother
When she got my grandfather, told me
You ought a heard my grandmother
When she got my grandfather, told me
She said, 'Get away from me, man
I swear you've done gotten too, old'

Now, when my baby left me
You know she left me with mule to ride
Now when my baby left me
You know she left me with mule to ride
Now, when the train left the station
You know my mule laid down an' died

You know, I sent my baby
You know a brand new twenty dollar bill
You know, I sent my babe
You know a brand new twenty dollar bill
Now if that don't bring her back
I'm doggone sure my shotgun will

Now, if I can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do'
Now, I can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do'
I leave so early in the mornin', you know
Your real man won't never know

Um-hm, baby
I ain't gonna sing for you no more
Um-hm, baby
You know I ain't gonna sing for you no more
Now, if you been startin' to leave
I swear, I'd just love to see you go.
