Wait And Listen by Fred McMullen

Wait and Listen - Fred McMullen,
Spanish tuning in D position, with a slide.

Well, you can wait and listen, hear me, when I cry, now don't you hear me talkin', pretty mam'
Well, you can wait and listen, hear me when I cry
When you hear me cryin', know that somethin' all wrong

Ooooo, wait and listen, hear them, when he make, now don't you hear me talkin', pretty mam'
Well, you can wait and listen, get him, when he may
Well, it's true-ooo, baby, something church's tone

Well, he dug her grave with a long-handled silver spade, now don't you hear me talkin', pretty mam'
Well, he dug her grave with a long-handled silver spade
Well, he let her-ooo down with a great long leather line

SOLO (Spoken: Play it)

Well, I followed my baby, to the buryin' ground, now don't you hear me talkin', pretty mam'
Well, I followed my baby, to the buryin' ground
What make it sad-eee, baby, had done let 'er down

Mmmm, smoke like lightnin', church bell shine like gold, now don't you hear me cryin', ooooo
Smoke like lightnin', church bell shine like gold
Well, it was such and I cry, mama, see my baby layin' on the bed
