Rolfyboy6 Lyr Req: Orphan's Blues (5) RE: Lyr Req: Orphan's Blues 14 Apr 02


This is a song By Washboard Sam from the forties. It's title on the original recording was "I Been Treated Wrong." It's usually known as "Orphan's Blues." It's on Document Records "Washboard Sam, Vol. 6, 1941-42". It became pretty well known in the folk Blues revival from being included on Sam Charters 1959 compilation "The Country Blues." Tom Rush in his blues phase did it as well as others. Good song by a prolific songwriter of the "Bluebird" era 1935-1950. I haven't found the lyrics on-line.
