BLUES WITHOUT A DIME
As recorded by Clifford Gibson, 1929.

Bad luck and trouble, and the blues without a dime. (2x)
When a man got money, the blues don't cross his min'.

Always try to keep a dollar in your hand. (2x)
When you ain't got no money, your woman get another man.

Don't never 'llow your woman to talk [no] baby-talk to you. (2x)
You can tell by that they got somethin' in they head to do.

I don't want no woman if she ain't got a railroad man. (2x)
Any day's like Sunday and she's always got a dollar in her han'.
