Joe Turner Blues (Nat King Cole)

This is a song was sung back in 18 and 92 There was a terrible flood that year People lost everything they had Their crops, their live stock That means their horses, their mules, cows Goats and everything they had on their farm And they would start cryin' and singin' this song They tell me, Joe Turner been here and gone Lord, they tell me, Joe Turner been here and gone They tell me, Joe turner been here and gone Then they would go out hunting rabbits, 'coons and 'possoms Anything they could catch Sometimes they would catch something, then again they didn't And when they would come home, they would find Flour meat and molasses In their homes and they would know that Joe Turner had been there and left food for them And they would start cryin' and singin' this song They tell me, Joe Turner been here and gone Lord, they tell me, that Joe turner been here and gone They tell me, Joe Turner been here and gone Then they would start out lookin' for wood And stuff to make a fire And they would look in their yards, and they would find axes, wood That Joe Turner had brought there for them Then they would get happy And start singin' and cryin' this song They would get happy and do a little boogie-woogie too
