Searching These Desserts For The Blues
Blind Willie McTell

You may search the ocean, you might go ‘cross deep blue sea
But, mama, you’ll not find another hot shot like me

I followed my baby from the station to the train
And the blues came down like dark night showers of rain

I left her at the station, wringing her hands and crying
I told her she had a home just as long as I got mine
(spoken: That makes me feel so good, baby)
I’ve got two women, and you can’t tell’em apart
I got one in my bosom, the other one in my heart
(spoken: Now, I ..... to know)
The one in my bosom, she’s in Tennessee
And the one in my heart don’t even give a darn for me
(spoken: I’m going ... Tennessee)
I used to say a married woman was the sweetest woman ever been born
But I changed that thing, you better leave married women alone
(spoken: Ha-ha)
Take my advice: let these married women be
Cause their husbands’ll grab you, beat you ragged as a cedar tree
(spoken: I hear it run like the devil's do)
When a woman says she love you ‘bout good as she do herself
I don’t pay her no attention, tell the same line to somebody else
(spoken: baby, take me.... you can’t do better)
I really don’t believe no woman in the whole round world do right
Act like an angel in the day time, mess by the ditch at night

I’m goin’, pretty mama, please don’t break this rule
That’s why I’m searching these desserts for the blues

I’m goin’, pretty mama, searchin’ these desserts now
That’s why I’m walkin’ my baby home anyhow
(spoken: It makes me feel like cryin’ if you talk like that)
(spoken: Sure, that’s too bad, baby)
Lord, oh Lord, Lordy, Lordy Lord
Oh, Lordy, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord

When a woman says she love you ‘bout good as she do herself
I don’t pay her no attention, tell the same line to somebody else
(spoken: I haven’t got anyone else to tell it to, baby)
Good bye, mama, I’m goin’ to leave you
(spoken: sp: Stay with me, baby)
Oh Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
