Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor
Gillian Welch Lyrics


Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet soft and low
When I'm broke an' I got no where to go

Been hangin' around with a good time friends of mine
Hangin' around with a good time friends of mine
Oh, they treat me very nice and kind
When I've got a dollar and a dime
Weary blues everywhere I see
Weary in blues everywhere I see
Weary blues, honey, everywhere I see
No one ever had the blues like me

Way I'm sleepin', my back and shoulders tired
Way I'm sleepin', my back and shoulders tired
Come tomorrow, I'll be satisfied
If I can catch that fast train and ride

So, make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet soft and low
Babe, I'm broke and I got no where to go

Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet soft and low
When I'm broke and I got nowhere to go
Been hanging 'round with a good-time friends of mine
Hanging around with a good-time friends of mine
Oh, they treat me very nice and kind
When I've got a dollar and a dime
We're in blues everywhere I see
We're in blues everywhere I see
We're in blues, honey, everywhere I see
No one ever had the blues like me
Way I'm sleeping, my back and shoulders tired
Way I'm sleeping, my back and shoulders tired
Come tomorrow, I'll be satisfied
If I can catch that fast train and ride
So, make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet soft and low
Babe, I'm broke and I got nowhere to go

This song has been coming to me in my sleep...for the last 4 months

Gillian...you are a Legend......God Bless

Richard Whiteford

This is some of the best lead guitar playing I've ever heard in this type of music.

Ethan Cordray

This is my favorite version of this classic song. I think Gillian captures the feel of the broke-down, weary blues perfectly. Just needing a place to sleep when you've got nothing left. If you've never been in that situation, you probably know somebody who has.

Michele M Media

Two gigantic talents. I can't stop listening. Thanks for posting such great sound too.They sold me two albums on E-music already, so keep it up. Fantastic albums!

Ian Cherryhomes

Oh my for sure. That subtle acknowledgement of you feeling like you know just what is going to please your uniquely refined ear. Luckily for us mere musical mortals we have documentations like this one to help us carry on the tradition of passing folk songs on to the next generation

Ricky Brand

Great version of one of my favorite songs. Gillian has such a beautiful voice. Doc Watson is my personal favorite! Love Mississippi John Hurt. The song has been covered by just about everyone. My good friend Huel Love does an awesome job with his Dobro and vocals!

I'll listen to Welch and Rawlings sing anything at any time but, pretty as this is, it totally lacks the heart of John Hurt or Doc Watson.

Ws Johnston

Perfect vocal and instrumental harmony. Pretty incredible!!!

Herman Munster

I just happened on this Welch / Rawlings collection by accident. I am transfixed and can't stop watching. By the way, I love Doc Watson just as much. Thanks Gillian and David.

Beautiful 💙
