In the morning, baby, just for a day,
Someone will get me and take me away!

I'm gonna leave you baby, goin' down to Steamboat Tennessee,
I'm gonna leave you baby, goin' down to Steamboat Tennessee,
'Cause it's the last time you're a-gonna crease up bedsheets with me!

Your New York lights shine so nice and bright,
Your New York lights shine so nice and bright,
I'd rather be down home, walkin' by the lantern light!

They say the time's a-comin' when a woman won't need a man,
They say the time's a-comin' when a woman won't need a man,
I'm gonna keep that time from comin' if I can!

Folks up here say I'm strange and queer,
Folks up here say I'm strange and queer,
I made 'em stay out of my garden, can't plant no cucumbers here!

Don't have to be no fortune teller to read what's on any man's mind,
Don't have to be no fortune teller to read what's on any man's mind,
And I'm glad to be goin', and I ain't leavin' too much behind!

And I'm glad to be goin', and I ain't leavin' too much behind!
This song is from the album "The Alternative Takes, Vol. 1: 1939-1944" and "Muggsy Special 1924-1954".
