Ma Rainey - Runaway Blues - 1928
I'll run away tomorrow
They don't mean me no good
I'll run away tomorrow
They don't mean me no good
I'm gonna run away
Hafta leave this neighborhood
Ahhh sun gonna shine though
Some day in my back yard
Ahhh sun gonna shine though
Some day in my back yard
I got my man but I had to wait so hard


Lord what's the matter?
Mama can't be treated just right
Lord what's the matter
Mama can't be treated just right
Got my??
What a? dark night
