Cherry Ball Blues (Skip James)

I love my little cherry ball Better than I love myself I love my cherry ball Better than I love myself Then if she don't love me She can't love nobody else Cherry ball, she quit me Quit me in a nice, good way Cherry ball, she quit me Quit me in a nice, good way You know, what it take to get her back I carries it ev'ryday Now, I left cherry ball standin' Standin' in the back do' cryin' Now, I left cherry ball Standin' in the back do' cryin' Of course, I feel her condition But her trouble ain't none a-mine She's just like a spider She's hangin' on the wall She's like a spider She's hangin' on the wall You know, she done quit me She quit me without a cause Now, when she left me She left tears in my eye Now, when she left me She left tears in my eye You know, that I love her But her disposition I do dispise Now, you can take the Southern I'm 'on take the Sante Fe Now, you take the Southern I'm 'on take the Sante Fe I'm gon' ride an gon' ramble 'Till cherry ball come back to me She got to come on back home to me-ee-ee.
