Poor John Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now rather be dead
Sleepin' in a hollow log
Now ruther be dead
An sleepin' in a hollow log
An to be here beggin' you
Car'in me like a dog
Verse 2
Now what you want po' John to do?
Now, what you want po' John to do?
Lord, I've done, done everything
Tryin' to get along wit' you
Verse 3
Now the woman I'm lovin'
She got one teeth solid gold
Now the woman I'm lovin'
She got one teeth solid gold
Lord, just stayin' on with this woman
Gotta mortgage on my soul
Verse 4
Now sho' as the grass
On the Texas earth grow green
Now sho' as the grass
On the Texas earth grow green
Lord, I ain't crazy about
Nobody I ever seen.
