Cornbread Beans And Molasses
Traditional - sung by Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry, Woody Guthrie*

I don't want no cornbread, beans and molasses (3)
At several times, Lord, Lord, several times

I got a letter, a letter  from my mother this morning (3)
She said: come home, Lord ,Lord, son, come  home!

I ain't got no, got no ready this morning (3)
I can't go home, Lord, Lord, can't go home

I don't want no cornbread, beans and molasses (3)
At several times, Lord, Lord, several times



*I found this song, and a dozen more, on a Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry compilation. Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly are not at all mentioned on that record. However, there is Guthrie's voice, too. And more over, almost the half of all songs released on this record in fact is performed by Woody Guthrie, in parts accompanied by Leadbelly and Sonny Terry, but mostly without Brownie McGhee. So, if you want to listen to these rare tracks, look for that curious Brownie & Sunny CD (Tempo Communications, Australia)... among them also better-known songs such as Lost John and Pick A Bale Of Cotton
