leadbelly – packin’ trunk blues lyrics

Loading...

(this song was made about a man and a woman. this man
wanna marry the woman, she didn’t want him. but she
married him anyhow for the money that he had. and she
thought she got every dollar he had, but she was
mistaken. but she got him pretty well bent, he’s
sittin’ with his head hung down. she walked by and she
says, “daddy, what’s the matter with you?” he looked at
her and here’s what he said to her.)

i’m sittin’ down here wonderin’ would a matchbox hold
my clothes
i’m sittin’ down here wonderin’ would a matchbox hold
my clothes
i’m sittin’ down here wonderin’ would a matchbox hold
my clothes

(she asks him, says, “papa, says, what the matter with
you?”)

i don’t wanna be bothered with no suitcase on my road
i don’t wanna be bothered with no suitcase on my road
i don’t wanna be bothered with no suitcase on my road

(he said, “i’m goin’ to see my friend and see what he
was doin’ when his wife packin’ up her trunk.”)

ah, what would you do when your baby packin’ up her
trunk
what would you do when your baby packin’ up her trunk
now what would you do when your baby packin’ up her
trunk

(he looked at him and here’s what he told him)

“get you a half a gallon o’ whiskey and get on you a
big drunk
get you a half a gallon o’ whiskey and get on you a big
drunk
get you a half a gallon o’ whiskey and get on you a big
drunk”

(she said, “daughters, go play the piano please for me
a little piece.” little girls jumped down and commenced
to play/playin’ the piano.)
