Cairo Blues by Henry Spaulding

Cairo Blues - Henry Spaulding,
EAEGBE tuning.

Cairo, Cairo is my baby's home
Cairo, Cairo is my baby's home
Going to Cairo, baby, and it won't be long

All I know, she take my lovin' on
Know my babe, she will take my lovin' on
Know by that I swear I won't stay here long

Hmm, hmm, mmm
Hmm, hmm, won't stay here long

SOLO

Women in Cairo will treat you nice and sweet
Women in Cairo will treat you kind and sweet
Get you a ride and then take you off their beat

Kick you and notch you, beat you and cut you, too
Kick you and notch you, beat you and cut you, too
When they get through with, you's ready for the grave

Hmm, babe, Cairo, hmm, babe
Cairo, Cairo is my baby's home
I'm going home and I swear and it twon't be long
