Falling Down Blues by Robert Wilkins

Falling Down Blues - Robert Wilkins,
D position, standard tuning.

I'm tired of standing on the long lonesome road
I'm tired of standing on the long lonesome road
Thinkin' 'bout my baby and got nowhere to go

It's fer down the road, friend, as I can see
It's fer down the road, friend, as I can see
See the woman I love standing, waving after me

I run to her, friend, fell down at her knee
I run to her, friend, fell down at her knee
Crying take me back baby, God knows if you please

If you don't believe, girl, I'll treat you right
If you don't believe, girl, I'll treat you right
Come and walk with me down to my loving shack tonight

I'll certainly treat you just like you was white
I'll certainly treat you just like you was white
That don't satisfy you, girl, I'll take your life

I love you, girl, I will tell the world I do
I love you, girl, I will tell the world I do
And that's the reason you treat me like you do

But go 'head, girl, that will be all right for you
But go 'head, girl, that will be all right for you
I will meet you someday when you down in hard luck too
