Mean Ole Frisco

by Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee

on Cripple Creek (2009), Go Blues (1945), Back Home Blues (2000)

Well, that mean old, mean old Frisco
And that low down Santa Fe
Yes, that mean old Frisco
Low down Santa Fe
Well it Carried my babe away
And blow that smoke out to me

I was standing, looking and listening,
For that southern whistle to blow
I was standing, listening,
For that southern whistle to blow
Well she didn't catch that southern
Lord now where did that girl go

Well, my mother, she done told me
And my father told me too
Yes, my mother she done told me
Father told me too
if a woman grins in your face, Son
Well, she ain't no friend of you

Lord, I wonder, I wonder
Will she ever think of me
Lord, I wonder
Will she ever think of me
Lord I wonder sometimes,
Will my baby think of me

Lord, I ain't got no, I ain't got no
Special rider here
Lord, I ain't got no
Special rider here
I think I'm gonna leave
'Cause I don't feel welcome here
