Song Author Blind Willie McTell Lyrics by: Blind Willie McTell Performer: Blind Willie McTell Submitted by: Anonymous
[C7]Wake up momma, [F7]turn your lamp down [C7]low   
[F7]Wake up momma, turn your lamp down [C7]low   
[G7]You got no love babe,
[F7]to turn Uncle John from your [C7]door   

[C7]I woke up this morning,
[F7]had them Statesboro [C7]Blues
[F7]I woke up this morning,
had them Statesboro [C7]Blues
[G7]I looked over in the corner,
and [F7]grandpa seemed to have them [C7]too   

[G7]Well my [C7]momma died and left me
My [C7]poppa died and left me
I [C7]ain't good lookin' baby
[C7]But somewhere I'm sweet and kind

I'm [F7]goin' to the country,
baby do you want to [C7]go   
If [G7]you can't make it baby,
[F7]your sister Lucile said she [C7]wanna go
[C7]I love that woman,
[F7]better than any woman I've ever [C7]seen   
[F7]I love that woman,
better than any woman I've ever [C7]seen   
[G7]She treats me like a king,
[F7]I treat her like a dog gone [C7]queen

[C7]Wake up momma,
[F7]turn your lamp down [C7]low   
[F7]Wake up momma,
turn your lamp down [C7]low   
[G7]You got no love babe,
[F7]to turn Uncle John from your [C7]door   

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low
You got no love babe,
to turn Uncle John from your door

I woke up this morning,
had them Statesboro Blues
I woke up this morning,
had them Statesboro Blues
I looked over in the corner,
and grandpa seemed to have them too

Well my momma died and left me
My poppa died and left me
I ain't good lookin' baby
But somewhere I'm sweet and kind

I'm goin' to the country,
baby do you want to go
If you can't make it baby,
your sister Lucile said she wanna go
I love that woman,
better than any woman I've ever seen
I love that woman,
better than any woman I've ever seen
She treats me like a king,
I treat her like a dog gone queen

Wake up momma,
turn your lamp down low
Wake up momma,
turn your lamp down low
You got no love babe,
to turn Uncle John from your door
