Papa Do Do Do Blues by Papa Charlie Jackson

Papa Do Do Do Blues - Papa Charlie Jackson,
C position, standard tuning.

INTRO SOLO

I'd rather be dead and sleepin' down in my grave
I'd rather be dead and sleepin' down in my grave
Than to be an old woman's darling, or to be a young woman's slave

It ain't no use, keep hangin' 'round, you know you don't mean me no good
T'ain't no use, keep hangin' 'round, you know you don't mean me no good
You say you're going to leave, sweet mama, Lord, I wish you would

Don't think your leavin' is going to make me stall
Don't think your leavin' is going to make me stall
'Cause I can get more women than a passenger zeppelin can haul

They call me Papa, Papa Do Do Do
They call me Papa, Papa Do Do Do
Yes, the life I'm livin', I don't have no chance to get through

I'm livin' my own life, you bet it's the life for me
I'm livin' my own life, you bet it's just the life for me
'Cause my papa told me, the blues would give me heart disease
