Subject: Lyr Add: WHAT WILL I DO FOR MY MONEY'S ALL GONE
WHAT WILL I DO FOR MY MONEY'S ALL GONE
As recorded by Uncle Eck Dunford & Hattie Stoneman, 1927.

I love my Lula Belle, I do, yes, I do, (3x)
But I don't expect to see her anymore.

I left her in the door on the cold icy floor. (3x)
She cried like she never cried before.

Them red rosy cheeks I will never get to see. (3x)
Oh, darling, won't you come back to me?

The sheriff and police they are riding after me. (3x)
I'm gone, I'm gone, yes, I'm gone.

I dreamed last night that Josephus come home. (3x)
He was knocking and banging on my door.

I jumped out of bed and I skipped 'cross the floor. (3x)
"Josephus don't you knock anymore."


Oh, what will I do? For my money is all gone. (3x)
You do like you done before.

I'll work hard all day and I'll bring it all to you. (3x)
Oh, Lula, what more can I do?
