I've been all over the internet and can not find lyrics for:

Awful Fix Blues by Buddy Boy Hawkins - there is a youtube submission but it's really hard to decipher

Down the Country by Blind Blake (and Leola Wilson) - again, hard to decipher

M 10 Blues by Willie Brown

One Line Blues by Blind Blake

Does anyone here have them or know where I can get them?

Thanks.

Go to page 92. It doesn't let me copy and paste so you'll probably have to retype it.

Down the Country by Blind Blake (and Leola Wilson) - again, hard to decipher

This has the lyrics in the video description.

M 10 Blues by Willie Brown
Lyrics are in the second post on this page. The title is M and O Blues

One Line Blues by Blind Blake

This one is called One Time Blues...can't find the lyrics, but found a recording of it on Amazon.





Does anyone here have them or know where I can get them?

Thanks.

@Mame,
I know there are some lyrics to Stove Pipe Stome, I heard it once while searching for them but can't find it again. Now I can't find anything but the instrumental version of Stove Pipe Stomp.

I'll keep looking and will post a link if I stumble across it again.

Below the video there is a bit of text. You need to click on the arrows to expand it so you can see the lyrics. If you still can't find it, let me know and I'll paste them here.

and how do I get to page 92 on the other one?

Scroll down the page you land on when you click the link. It looks like a table of contents. Look for the one for page 92 and click on it. I found the lyrics there.

@Butrflynet,
Here are the lyrics from that youtube page:

==
* Down The Country
* Vocal : Leola Wilson
* Guitar : Blind Arthur Blake
* November 1926

LYRICS
" Ever wake up, just about the break of day
You ever wake up, just about the break of day.
Leave your arms around the pillow Mr. So and So used to lay.

I'm going away baby, won't be back until fall (x2)
If I don't win no money, won't be back at all.

I heard you cracking, the levee blues (x2)
If you don't think I'm leaving, count the days that I'll be gone.

If the river was nickel and I was a duck (x2)
I would sow to the bottom and I would never come up.

I'm leaving this town, I'm on my last pass through (x2)
I'm gonna way from here, it looks down the country blues. "

Thank you for the lyrics! For the other, I don't get a TOC looking thing - I get books for sale by topic. Can you go to page 92 and send me that link? Really, I don't see it anywhere.

@Mame,
Try this:

http://books.google.com/books?id=4FiUGLmsj-gC&lpg=PA12&ots=s-CrgdedRi&dq=lyrics%20Awful%20Fix%20Blues%20by%20Buddy%20Boy%20Hawkins&pg=PA92#v=onepage&q&f=false

It may be too long to work, so I'll make a shortcut for it. Click here.

You may have to enable the Google Books function to view the pages. Let me know if you still can't see it and I'll try to figure out how to tell you to do that.

@Mame,
Awful Fix Blues lyrics are available in Country Blues Songbook published by Oak in 1973. Here are the scanned lyrics which seem to be pretty accurate.

Hey, mama, tell me what have I, tell me what have I,'tain't no lie!

Hey, mama, tell me what have I done?

Because seem like you're tryin'-a ease your lovin'fair brown down.



You're gonna wake up one of these mornings now, sweet mama, and I'll be,

Baby, mama, and I'll be-'tain't no lie, tell the truth!

You're gonna wake up one of these mornings, mama, say then I'll be gone.

And you may not never, mama, see me in your town no more.



'Cause I'm a stranger here, woman, I just blowed in your,

I just blowed in your mamlish town.

I'm a stranger to you, brownskin mama, just blowed in your town.

Says, if I ask you for a favor, mama, please ma'am, don't turn me down.



If you get one old woman, boy, you better get you five or,

You'd better get you five or-I mean six!

If you get one old woman, you'd better get you five or six.

So if that one happen to quit you, it won't leave you in no awful fix.



When I had you, pretty mama, you know I was tryin'to do the best I-

I mean could! Baby, it wasn't no lie!

I say when I had you, little black woman, I was tryin'to do the best I could.

Now your little daddy is gone, now who you gonna get to chop your wood?
