    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
