T-Bone Walker Lyrics

Call It Stormy Monday
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad
They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad
Wednesday's worse, and Thursday's also sad
Yes, the eagle flies on Friday, and Saturday I go out to play
Eagle flies on Friday, and Saturday I go out to play
Sunday I go to church, then I kneel down and pray
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, my heart's in misery
Crazy about my baby, yes, send her back to me

Description Blues
by Reiner

I was in love with a married woman, an I just couldn't help myself
I was in love with a married woman, an I just couldn't help myself
But I don't go 'round breakin' up families, an' that's the reason why I left
She looked at me like she could kill me, when I said that we were through
She looked at me like she could kill me, when I said that we were through
I'm on the side that's doin' the buildin', and not the wreckin' crew
There are so many women, that are footloose an fancy free
There are so many single women, that are footloose an fancy free
So why should I fool with a married woman, who can't can't do a thing for me?

Evenin'
by Mitchell Parish / Harry White

Evenin'
Ev'ry night you come and you find me, oh Lord
And you always come and remind me, oh yes
That my gal is gone, my baby's gone, oh Lord, my baby's gone
Evenin'
Can't you see I'm deeply in your power, oh Lord?
Every minute seems like an hour, oh Lord
Since my gal, she's gone, my baby's gone, my baby's gone
Now shadow's fallin', well,
Are on the wall
That's the time I miss your kiss, most of all
Even though I try, how can I go on, oh yes, go on
Pretty baby
Evenin'
Let me sleep 'til the gray dawn is breakin', oh yes
I don't care if I don't awaken, oh Lord
Since my gal she's gone, my baby's gone, oh yes she's gone
Evenin'
Let me sleep 'til gray dawn is breakin', oh Lord
I don't care if I don't awaken, oh yes, since my gal she's gone
My baby's gone, my baby's gone
My baby's gone

I'm About To Lose My Mind
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

You broke my heart, baby just one too many time
You broke my heart, baby just too many time
From drinkin' bad whiskey, mama, gin an rum an wine
Well, today you say you're quittin', tomorrow you say you're not
Yes, you say you quittin', tomorrow you say you're not
An if ya don't stop drinkin' baby, I swear you're gonna blow your top
Yes, drinkin' woman, you stay drunk all the time
Yes, drinkin' woman, you stay drunk all the time
You keep me so worried baby, I'm 'bout to lose my mind

It's A Low Down Dirty Deal
by John L. Crainer / Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more
I tried to please her but it only made her mad
I tried to please her but it only made her mad
She done strip me and took everything I had
Now what you gonna do with a woman like that?
Now what you gonna do with a woman like that?
Who takes all your money yes and leaves you flat?
Yes it's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more
Now it was money in the morning, and money every night
If I didn't have no money, she was ready to fight
It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more

Long Skirt Baby Blues
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

When I first met you baby, you were a real gone chick
When I first met you baby, you were a real gone chick
Now you've let your skirt down 'n you know that ain't the lick
You better wake up baby n' change your antique ways
You better wake up baby n' change your antique ways
Instead of advancin' baby, you're goin back to horse and buggy days
You said the style is changin', I don't know why I should laugh or cry
You said the style is changin' I don't know if I should laugh or cry
You've been wearin' long skirts baby, you don't know the reason why
Just leave it up to a woman, they'll do it every time
Just leave it up to a woman, they'll do it every time
Well ain't no long skirt baby, gonna be no gal a-mine

Mean Old World
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

This is a mean old world, baby, to live in by yourself
This is a mean old world to live in by your self
When you can't get the woman you love, you know she's loving someone else
Well, I drink to keep from worrying and I smile to keep from crying
I drink to keep from worrying, baby, I smile to keep from crying
That's to keep the public from knowing just what I have on my mind
Some day, some day, baby, I'll be six feet in my grave
Some day, some day, darling, I'll be six feet in my grave
And, I won't be around here to be mistreated, darling, like a low-down slave

Midnight Blues
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

Well, the clock is strikin' twelve, somebody's got to go
Well, the clock is strikin' twelve, somebody's got to go
Gee, but I'm going to miss ya baby, this is one thing I'm sure you know
When it's twelve o'clock in Memphis, it's one o'clock in San Antone
When it's twelve o'clock in Memphis, it's one o'clock in San Antone
When it's midnight in California, I'll be so all alone
Midnight is an awful hour, why does it come so soon?
Midnight is a awful hour, why does it come so soon?
It never bring me happ'ness, it always leave me filled with gloom
Don't ever gamble buddy, unless you're sure that you can't lose
Don't ever gamble buddy, unless you're sure that you can't lose
You better take my advise, unless you want this midnight blues
"Put it away!"

Papa Ain't Salty No More
by McDaniel / Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

Come home little girl, your papa ain't salty no more
Come home little girl, your papa ain't salty no more
I need your love, and I swear I miss you so
I know I was wrong, and I know I've caused you pains
I know I was wrong, and I know I've caused you pains
I'm sorry pretty baby, I won't do that again
Why, oh why pretty baby, why did you have to go
Please come back home pretty mama
Papa ain't salty no more

Play On Little Girl
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker

Play on little girl, just keep on having fun
Play on little girl, just keep on having fun
You ball everyday, and you leave your work undone
Yes I love my baby, oh yes I really do
Well, I love my baby, oh yes I really do
Why not stay at home baby, and let me ball some too
Play on little girl, play until the morning sun
Play on little girl, play until the morning sun
You don't live but once, so you're playing days are done

She's The No Sleepin'est Woman
by Paul Rainer

When I tiptoe to the house, high as a kite
I'd rather face a tiger than to face my wife
She's the no sleepin'est woman I ever did see
When I hit the doorstep she knows it's me
With my shoes in my hand, I'm careful too
It makes no difference, it's "honey, is that you?"
She's the no sleepin'est woman I ever did see
When I hit the doorstep she knows it's me
Well I like to play around sometime with my friend
But when I go home I'm afraid to go in
She thinks my head is a rubber ball
It's the same old story from summer to fall
She knows I'm sick, and a little tight
But I gotta prepare for a all night fight
She's the no sleepin'est woman I ever did see
When I hit the doorstep she knows it's me
Well I like to play around sometime with my friend
But when I go home I'm afraid to go in
She thinks my head is a rubber ball
It's the same old story from summer to fall
She knows I'm sick, and a little tight
But I gotta prepare for a all night fight
She's the no sleepin'est woman I ever did see
When I hit the doorstep she knows it's me
She's the no sleepin'est woman I ever did see
I give her some pills and she trick poor me
No sleepin'est woman that I ever did see
