Peoples, I had a woman
She was nice and kind to me in every way
Peoples, I had a woman
She was nice and kind to me in every way
Lord, she died, she left me
I sing the blues on every Decoration Day

Lord, I was standin' 'round my baby's bedside
When my Lord taken my baby away
Lord, I was standin' 'round my baby's beside
When my Lord taken my baby away
Well, well, when you so doggone bad
Lord, I hung my head and cried, yes, so sorry

She said, "Daddy please don't worry"
'Cause everybody's got to go"
Daddy please don't worry
'Cause everybody's got to go

Well, well, well, well, Lord, the best woman
God knows I ever had, all this hurtin'
I just hung my head and cried

Yes, it was a sad day with me
So sad that day, so sad, that day
When my Lord taken my baby away

Well, well, well, I'll meet my baby
On some old lonesome day
