Phonograph Blues

    Phonograph Blues (take 1)

    Beatrice, she got a phonograph

      and it won't say a lonesome word
    Beatrice, she got a phonograph
      but it won't say a lonesome word
    What evil have I done
      what evil has the poor girl heard

    Beatrice, I love my phonograph

      but you have broke my windin' chain
    Beatrice, I love my phonohra'-ooo
      honey, you have broke my windin' chain
    And you've taken my lovin'
      and give it to your other man

    Now, we played it on the sofa, now

      we played it 'side the wall
    My needles have got rusty, baby
      they will not play at all
    We played it on the sofa
      we played it 'side the wall
    But my needles have got rusty
      and it will not play at all

    Beatrice, I go crazy

      baby, I will lose my mind
    And I go cra'-ee
      honey, I will lose my mind
    Why'nt you bring your clothes back home
      and try me one more time
    She got a phonograph
      and it won't say a lonesome word
    She got a phonograph
      oo-won't say a lonesome word
    What evil have I done
      Or what evil have the poor girl heard
