Subject: Lyr Add: CIGARETTE BLUES (from Roy Book Binder)
I like Roy Book Binder's rendition of "Cigarette Blues". I've put *** where he just uses music, instead of the words which would really spell it out, so to speak:-)The tape I have is called "Bookeroo!", 1988, Rounder Records. There's some great dobro on it by Jerry Douglas.

CIGARETTE BLUES

Since I'm out here, baby, course I'm all alone,
I haven't got me nobody just to carry my smoking on
Woncha just smoke my cigarette baby, smoke it all night long
Roll my cigarette baby, 'til you make my good ole' ashes *****

Going up the country, git my ashes hauled
Women round this part of town gonna let my ashes fall
Woncha just smoke my cigarette baby, smoke 'em all night long
Roll my cigarette baby, until you make my good ole ashes *****

Going up the country, get my ham bone boiled
Women in this part of town, gonna let my ham bone spoil
Woncha just smoke my cigarette baby, smoke it all night long
Roll my cigarette baby, til you make my ....*****

One thing that I want you to know before I leave from home
No my cigarette ain't too big, no it ain't too ****
Won't you just smoke my cigarette baby, smoke it all night long
Roll my cigarette baby...........
