Big Star Fallin’

written by Blind Willie McTell


wake up mama, don’t you sleep so hard (X2)
can’t you hear these blues walkin’ all over your yard

I got these blues, I’m not satisfied (X2)
that’s the reason why I stole away and I cried

blues grabbed me at midnight, wouldn’t turn me loose till day (X2)
I didn’t have nobody to drive these blues away

big star fallin’, mama ain’t long ‘fore day (X2)
maybe the sunshine this time will drive my blues away
