The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Richmond Blues

Honey, all night 4 long
baby all night 1 long
Got the Richmond 5 blues
baby all night 1 long

I'm going to the depot
look upon the board
If the train ain't here
it's somewhere on the road

If I'd a-minded
what mama said
I could-a been sleeping
in mama's bed

Me being young
and foolish too
I left my home
on account of you

I'd rather be dead
and in my grave
Than be in this town
treated this a-way

Ain't got no woman
ain't got no kin
Ain't got nobody
to be bothered with

So if I live
and don't get killed
Gonna make my home
in Louisville
