No one to love me
No one to care
And the gal I'm loving
She don't play fair
She gone an left me
I shouldn't worry, why should I care?
I got a mind to ramble
I got a mind to leave the town
'Cause the gal I been a-loving
She's gone and throwed me down
How could she leave me
So cold in hand?
She give my money
To another man
She gone an left me
I shouldn't worry, why should I care?
Good luck is a fortune, mama
And it's bound to come m'way
I'm down now, baby
But I will be up someday
She pawned my diamond
My watch and chain
Would-a pawned herself
But she felt ashamed
She gone an left me
I shouldn't worry, why should I care?
Sometime I wonder, mama
Who put the jinx on me?
Well, I ain't no bad fella
And I don't intend to be
She left me thinkin'
Down on my bed
Hopin' and wishing
That I was dead
She gone an left me
I shouldn't worry, why should I care?
Just as sho' as you hear, mama
That big four whistle blow
I'm leavin yo' city, mama
An I won't be back no mo'.
