Bessie Smith – Yellowdog Blues

Ever since Miss Susie Johnson
Lost her jockey Lee
There has been much excitement
And more to be
—-
You can hear her moanin’
Moanin’ night and morn
She’s wonderin’ where her
Easy rider’s gone
—-
Cablegrams goes off in inquiry
Telegrams goes off in sympathy
Letters came from down in Bam
Everywhere that Uncle Sam
Is the ruler of delivery
—-
All day the phone rings, it’s not for me
At last good tidings fills my heart with glee
This message came from Tennessee
—-
Dear Sue, your easy rider struck this burg today
On a southbound rattler beside the Pullman car
I seen him there and he was on the hog
—-
Oh, you easy rider’s got to stay away
She had to vamp it but the hike ain’t far
He’s gone where the Southern cross the Yellow Dog
