Featuring Rebecca Jenkins

lyrics

Alberta Hunter

I did it to myself should take it on the chin
there's hardship everywhere I've been
so cold oh mercy
a little fire won't do
dreaming of a Mississippi hot afternoon
I spent my money and sold my car
all i have is this guitar
E is flat
and B is too
singing Alberta Blues

Alberta Blues

Numbskull Freddy had a quick, cash plan
(he said) no need to worry you're going to be a rich man
but the law got wise and shut it down
Freddy's bird sang
but my bird flew south
six month stand in a prairie jail
her perfumed letter came in the mail
she's headed east
she's gotta cut loose
to try and shake Alberta Blues


Alberta Blues
Greyhound milk run crawling east
to a Halifax skyline where she waits for me
she said it hasn't been easy
her hearts split in two
and she's crying Alberta Blues
Alberta Blues
