Lover’s Tree





‘an as much as he sayed
he loved me
jimmy never did
put
my name
up on lover’s tree


‘ah gots it bad for ya
emmie
he go ‘an cry dat into
my bosom
sucklin’ like a newborn
‘an springing up between me


‘an so i bled
‘and i scream
‘an i cry hard tears
jus’ like a woman do
for dat tiger man
jimmy


‘an den he tell me
yous a sweet girl
i luv you
emmie…
yous a sweet, sweet
girl


‘an as much as he sayed

he loved me
jimmy never did
put
my name
up on dat lover’s tree
