How Long Blues

How Long Blues
--Written and sung by Big Joe Turner

How long, Baby how long,
Must I keep my clothes in pound?

How long,
How how long,
Baby how long?

I can see the green grass growing way up on yonder
But I ain't seen the greenback on the dollar bill.

So long
So long
Baby so long

Well, I wish I could holler
And I’d scream like a mountain jack
I’d go way up on the mountain
And I’d call my baby back

But how long
How long
Has that evening train been gone
How long
How long
Baby, how long
Play the blues!

Repeat all.
