Leaving This Morning

(Leaving This Morning)

Leaving This Morning
Performed by: Ma Rainey

Been reeliní and rockiní
Drunk as I can be
Man I love tryiní to make a fool of me
Iím leaving this morning
Iím leaving this morning
Iím leaving tryiní to find a man of my own
When I get through drinkiní
From five gallon drums
Find my man, he better hitch up and run
ĎCause Iím leaving this morning
Iím leaving this morning
Iím going to Kansas City to bring Jim Jackson home
Iíd give him all my money
Get him nice, I can
Got another woman
Wait Ďtill I find my man
Lord, I leaviní this morning
Iím leaviní this morning
Iím leaviní
Tryiní to find a man of my own
(Instrumental Ė 12 bars)
I went up 18th Street
Found out where the other women stayed
For my man of this size and weight
ĎCause Iím leaving this morning
Honey, Iím leaving this morning
Iím going to Kansas City to bring Jim Jackson home
I walked down the street
Didnít have on no hat
Askiní everybody I see
Where my dadís at
I leaviní this morning
Honey, Iím leaviní this morning
Iím leaviní
Tryiní to find a man of my own
