ALBERTA BLUES
(Walter Jacobs Bo Carter)
As recorded by Mississippi Sheiks on Okeh 8773, 1930.

Alberta, Alberta, where you been so long?
Tell me, Alberta, where you been so long?
Hadn't been no lovin' since you been gone.

Alberta, Alberta, where'd you stay last night?
Tell me, Alberta, where'd you stay last night?
Come home this mornin', sun was shinin' bright.

If you see Alberta, tell her to hurry home. (2x)
Hadn't been no lovin' since you been gone.

Alberta, Alberta, what you goin' to do?
Tell me, Alberta, what you goin' to do?
Just a little bit o' lovin' makes your heart be true.

I met Alberta way 'cross the sea. (2x)
She wouldn't write me no letter; she didn't care for me.

Alberta, Alberta, dear pal o' mine, (2x)
And she left me walkin', still rollin' an' cryin'.

I love Alberta; tell the world I do. (2x)
Just a little bit o' lovin' makes your heart be true.
