You can hear this version at YouTube:


ALBERTA BLUES
As recorded by Jazz Gillum on Bluebird 7341, 1937.

Well, I ain't goin' down, baby, that dark road by myself.
Babe, I ain't goin' down, baby, that dark road by myself.
I'm gon' leave you, sweet mama; I'm gon' take somebody else.

Well, I won't take my bucket to your no-good well no mo'. (2x)
When I wants cool water, I'm gon' make Alberta go.

Alberta, Alberta, what makes you treat me so? (2x)
You don't treat me no better than that man you had befo'.

She's a long-drawn(?) woman; she's got coal-black curly hair. (2x)
She's got airplane movements; she can make it anywhere.
