MEAN MAMA BLUES
(Marty Robbins)
MARTY ROBBINS (COLUMBIA 4-21477, 1955)

Well, when I come home this morning
It was still too dark to see
I could tell my baby wasn't sleeping next to me
She's gone and left me
Where to I guess I'll never know
I only know her leave has brought pain and misery to my soul
Well, a note was on the pillow
She's gone without a doubt
I tried to read her writing, but I couldn't make it out
'Cause tears were fallin'
Too fast for me to even read
Nobody knows my sorrow, nobody knows my misery

My friends told me she'd leave me
But I said they wasn't right
She gave no word of warning, she'd be leavin' in the night
Can't understand her
What made my baby want to go?
I didn't hear her leavin', she didn't even close the door
When she'd come home this morning
I'd jump and shout with flee
She can't mean more to someone else, than what she means to me
I love that woman
I got to have her all the time
I got to have her near me, to ease this misery on my mind
