Jim Dixon Lyr Req: songs by Monette Moore (13) Lyr Add: MOANING SINNER BLUES (Monette Moore) 10 Jun 20


I heard this one on Spotify—you can also hear it on YouTube. Discographical information from 78discography.com.
By the way, on this recording and the previous one, I think I hear a bassoon—a very unusual instrument in a blues song.


MOANING SINNER BLUES
As recorded by Monette Moore on Victor 20484, 1927.

I've been down all my days.
All my friends have gone away.
[record skips] all around.
That's just why I'm all down.

I'm deep down with trouble.
I'm sorry to my soul
'Cause I ain't got no place to go.
I'm out here in the cold.

Oh, I'm tired and worried
And don't know what to do,
'Cause I'm a moaning sinner,
So lonesome and so blue.

I want ev'rybody
In this wide world to know
That I'm deep down with trouble
And got no place to go.

Oh, I'm sick with sorrow
To my very soul,
'Cause I'm a moaning sinner
Out here in the cold.
