SWEET MAMA HURRY HOME OR I'LL BE GONE
(Jack Neville Ė J. Rodgers)
As recorded by Jimmie Rodgers, 1932 (Victor 23796)

1. I've been so blue
And lonesome, too,
Evíry since you went away.
My poor heart yearns for you both night and day.
Since you're gone the stars don't seem to shine.
You are always on my mind.
I'm so unhappy for I want just you.

CHORUS: But there'll come a time
You'll miss me and you'll be blue.
There'll come a time
You'll want me; no one else will do. (Sweet mama!),
Your heart will long
For my loving; then you'll see that you were wrong;
And I know you will sigh
And maybe sometime cry,
But then I'll be long gone. (Sweet mama!)
Hurry home or I'll be gone.
Hurry home or I'll be gone.

2. You won my heart
Right from the start.
I gave all my love to you.
I never dreamed that you could be untrue.
You had ways of loving all your own.
That's what made me leave my happy home,
But now you're gone and I'm left all alone. CHORUS
