Lord Send Me An Angel
Blind Willie McTell

Good Lord, good Lord, send me an angel down
Can't spare you no angel, I'll send you a teasin' brown
That new way of loving, swear to got it best
All these Georgia women won't let Mr. McTell rest

There's a crowd down on the corner, ........ (?) it could be
One thing ................... (?)
Went down to the sheriff with my  suitcase in my hand
All the women run cryin': Mr. Mac, won't you be my man?

Then my mama, she told me
............................................... (?)
My baby studyin' evil, and I'm studyin' evil too
Gonna hang round here to see what my baby gon' do

I can't be trusted, and I can't be satisfied
When the men see me comin', they go pin their women to their side
Make my loving like to get it any time of day
To get my right lovin', I'm going to Georgia right away

(spoeken: Ah, play, sure, good)

I got three women, yellow, brown and black
Takes the governor of Georgia to judge the one I like

One woman's Atlanta yellow, one's of that Macon brown
But the Statesboro dark skin will turn your temper down
So bye bye mama, I'll see you some sweet day
You'll be sorry you drove your man away
