Early Mornin' Blues by William Harris

Early Mornin' Blues - William Harris,
C position, standard tuning.

I woke up this mornin', heard someone callin' me
I woke up this mornin', heard someone callin' me
It must've been my woman, leavin' up by Tennessee

Hey, baby, that ain't no way to do
Hey, baby, that ain't no way to do
Just got me lovin' you, turn your old back on me

I'm going to see you, pretty mama, when your troubles be just like mine
I'm going to see you, pretty mama, troubles be just like mine
I'm goin' to see you when, baby, your troubles is just like mine

I woke up this mornin', 'tween midnight and day
I woke up this mornin', 'tween midnight and day
I saw my rider, makin' her get-away

Well, I don't see why my baby treats me so bad
I don't see why my baby treats me so bad
And it's all I done, mama, hug and call you hon'

Hey, hey, mama, that ain't no way to do
Hey-ey, mama, that ain't no way to do
Just treat me dirty, that's the way you do
