The Original Delta and Country Blues

Family Skeleton Blues by Kitty Brown

Family Skeleton Blues - Kitty Brown, Unknown accompanists.

Oh the night's so dark and I'm all alone
Lord, I don't know what to do
My sweet man has gone, that is why I moan
Now I'm feeling sad and blue

If I had someone just to pity me
I could tell my tale of woe
Noone knows how much trouble that I see
I'm just like the old black crow, for

They're always talking about the way I live
They're always talking about the way I live
They're always saying somebody stole my man
And that I'm homely, my clothes are second hand

Call me a vampire, a woman 'bout the town
Call me a vampire, a woman 'bout the town
Said that I rambled in every cabaret
Chock full of whiskey, stayed out 'til break of day

I'm tired of living but I'm afraid to die
I'm tired of living but I'm afraid to die
Gee, but I'm worried because they all accuse
They've got me singing my family skeleton blues
