Bird Nest Bound
by Charley Patton

Come on, mama, go to the edge of town
Come on, mama, go to the edge of town
I know where there's a bird nest, built down on the ground
If I was a bird, mama,
if I was a bird, mama, I would find a nest in the heart of town
(spoken: Lord, you know I'd build it in the heart of town)
So when the town get lonesome, I'd be bird nest bound
Hard luck is at your front door, blues are in your room
Hard luck is at your front door, blues are in your room
Callin' at your back door, "What's gonna become of you?"
Sometimes I say I need you, then again I don't
Sometimes I say I need you, then again I don't
(spoken: You know it's the truth, baby)
Sometime I think I'll quit you, then again I won't
Oh, I remember one mornin' stand in my baby's door,
(spoken: Sure, boy, I was standin' there)
Oh, I remember one mornin' stand in my baby's door,
(spoken: Boy, you know what she told me?)
"Look-a here papa Charley, I don't want you no more"
Take me home sweet home, baby, to that shiny star
Take me home now to, that shiny star
(spoken: Lord, you know I'm just stayin' there)
You don't need no tellin', mama, take you in my car
