Papa Will Be Gone by Rosa Henderson

Papa Will Be Gone - Rosa Henderson,
Accompanied by Fletcher Henderson's Jazz Five.

I'm tired of fussing and calling you down
Your trifling ways is the talk of the town
You played around and tried to two-time me
You've caused such misery

Done everything that a sweet mama should
Done everything I could
Still you won't appreciate
'Til it will be too late

You gonna wake some mornin', you gonna be in mournin'
'Cause sweet mama will be gone
You gonna wake up sighin', you gonna wake up cryin'
You'll be all alone
You used to call me your ace in the hole
But papa, papa, you'll miss sweet jellyroll
You gonna wake some mornin', you gonna be in mournin'
But sweet mama will be gone

Oh, you're gonna wake some mornin', you're gonna be in mourning
'Cause sweet mama will be gone
Oh, you're gonna wake up sighing, you're gonna wake up crying
You'll be all alone
You used to call me your ace in the hole
But papa, papa, you'll miss sweet jellyroll
You're gonna wake some morning, you're gonna be in mourning
But sweet mama will be gone
