Red River Blues

Henry Thomas, Red River Blues (1928)

Look where the sun done gone
Look where the sun done gone
Look where the sun done gone poor boy
Look where the sun done gone

Yest it’s gone gone god knows where
Yes it’s gone god knows where
Look where the sun done gone dar-lin
Look where the sun done gone

Now baby I’m all out and down
Now baby I’m all out and down
I’m all out and down I’m (?-burg) bound
Look where the sun done gone

I’m a poor boy I’m a long way from home
Poor boy a long way from home
I’m a poor boy a long way from home darlin
Look where the sun done gone

Which a-way : do the Red River run
Which a way do the red river run
Which a way do the red river run poor boy
Which a way do the red river run

Well she run north and south
Yes she run north and south
Which away do the red river run poor boy
Well she run north and south
