Poor Howard



Ol' Howard, po' boy
(plays the tune he just sung)
Ol' Howard he is dead an' gone
left me here to sing this song
left me here to sob and mourn (or moan)

Pretty little girl with a red dress on
(above line repeated two times)
God knows, pretty little girl with a red dress on

(Spoken) Ol' Howard is a po' white(?). He goes all around over the plantations. Plays for the sukey jumps. He is the first man to start the sukey jump playin' in the world, and he would go all around, while po' Howard is dead and gone, everybody sings this song about him.

(singing starts again)
Ol' Howard is dead an' gone
left me here to sing and mourn
Ol' Howard Po' boy
Ol' Howard, he was a po' boy
(repeat last line 2 times)
Ol' Howard, he was a po' boy,

Red Cross Store Blues



I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She come down Justine, tell me I wanna talk with you in just a little while
Ain't you goin' down and fight for your wife and child?
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She come down here and she shook my hand
She said, "Daddy I want you to go down there and fight for me like a man"
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She said the Red Cross people they treat you mighty fine
They mixing everything up with whiskey and wine
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She come down here talkin' to me about the war
I told her baby I ain't done nothing to go there for
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She come down here and she fell down on her knees
I said baby I have to look somewhere for your butter and cheese
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

She said Daddy I just come down here to tell you so
You better go running down to that Red Cross store
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store

Relax Your Mind



Relax your mind
Relax your mind
Ooh, it'll make you live a great long time
Sometimes you've got to relax your mind.
When the light turns green
Ooh push down on your gasoline
One time you've got to relax your mind.
When the light turns red
Ooh, shove your breaks down to the bed,
One time you've got to relax your mind.

Relax your mind,
Relax your mind,
Oh it'll make you feel so fine some times,
Sometimes you've got to relax your mind.

When you're driving in your automobile,
Ooh, keep your eyes down through that windshield.
That's the time you've got to relax your mind.

Once there was a man
Crossing the railroad track,
Ooh boy, and he forgot to relax
That was one time he should have relaxed his mind.

Relax your mind,
Relax your mind,
Ooh it'll make you feel just as fine as wine,
Sometime you've got to relax your mind.

Relax now

Relax your mind,
Relax your mind,
Ooh, it'll make you live a great long time.
Sometime you've got to relax your mind.

Rock Island Line



Chorus
Oh that Rock Island Line is a mighty good road,
Oh that Rock Island Line is that road to ride,
Oh that Rock Island Line is a mighty good road,
If you want to ride, you got to ride it like you find it,
Get your ticket at the station on the Rock Island Line.

Jesus died to save our sins--hooray to God,
We're going to meet him again!

(Chorus)

I may be right and I may be wrong,
You are going to miss me when I'm gone!

(Chorus)

A B C W X Y Z,
Cats in the cupboard, but they don't see me!

(Chorus)

Shorty George



Well-a Shorty George, he ain't no friend of mine
Well-a Shorty George, he ain't no friend of mine
He's taken all the women and left the men behind

Well-a Shorty George, he done been here and gone
Yes, Shorty George, he done been here and gone
Lord he left many a poor man a great long way from home

Well my baby caught the Katy, I caught the Santa Fee
Well she caught the Katy, I caught the Santa Fee
Well, you can't quit me, baby, can't you see

Well I went to Galveston, work on the Mallory Line
Went to Galveston, Lord on the Mallory Line
Babe you can't quit me, ain't no use tryin'

Shorty George, travelin' through the land
Shorty George, he's travelin' through the land
Always looking to pick some woman's poor man

When I get back to Dallas, I'm gonna walk and tell
When I get back to Dallas, gonna walk and tell
That the Fort Bend Bottom is a burning hell

If he asks you was I laughin'
If he asks you was I laughin'

They Hung Him On A Cross



They hung him of a cross
They hung him on a cross
They hung him on a cross for me

One day when I lost
They hung him on a cross
They hung him on a cross for me

They whooped him up the hill
They whooped him up the hill
They whooped him up the hill for me

One day when I lost
They hung him on a cross
They whooped him up the hill for me

He never said among them would
They never said among them would
They never said among them would for me

One day when I lost
They hung him on a cross
They hung him on a cross for me

They hurt him in the side
They bit him in the side
They bit him in the side for me

One day when I lost
They hung him on a cross
They hung him on a cross for me

They hung his head and died
They hung his head and died
He hung his head and died for me

One day when I lost
They hung him on a cross
They hung him on a cross for me

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My husband was a hardworking man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
And his body hasn't ever been found

My girl, my girl, don't you lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
