HARD HEARTED PAPA
As recorded by Monette Moore on Victor 20484, 1927.

Lord, I'm feelin', Lord, I'm feelin' blue.
Lord, I'm feelin', Lord, I'm feelin' blue,
And I really, really don't know what to do,
'Cause my hard-hearted papa treats me like he do.

I rise in the mornin', dressed when the clock strikes four.
Lord, Lord, Lord, rise in the mornin', dressed when the clock strikes four.
Five o'clock I am washin' and scrubbin' somebody's floor.

And ev'ry night when I'm finished and start my journey home,
Lord, Lord, nights when I'm finished and start my journey home,
I stop on the way and bring home some washin' home.

He's a hard-hearted papa, beatin' me all the time.
Lord, Lord, hard-hearted papa, beatin' me all the time.
Beats me so hard I'm 'fraid that I'll lose my min'.
