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

Southern Appalachian Bluegrass: "Enchanting" !!

George Washington

Its actually an old blues song.

George Parkins

See, this is the height of folk music: someone else whose name is probably lost to time wrote it, but she's lived it ten times or more and she sings it in a way that lets you know she did.

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.

Cameron Walker

Her guitarist better keep a hand at the level of his eye... getting strong "Phantom" vibes 😆

Richard Whiteford

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

littlemaddancer

lillyandruben

just been listening to Mississippi John Hurt version

Flipdrivel

@Doug Cortes This is of course a traditional song which none of the above people can claim to have "written", though they each adapted it to their purposes!

Doug Cortes

@city zen Definitely, but it's from the 1800s and predates the Blues.
