(What a) Shame (Trad. Blues)

(What a) Shame

What a shame–when your baby don’t want you anymore–
What a shame shame shame when your baby don’t want you anymore–
She said she finished my chapter–closed her book—
Showed me out the door.

Well I’m gonna miss that woman–she knows how to rock her stuff
If you see her on the dance floor, you’ll never get enough.
Well I’m gonna miss that woman–she knows how to rock her stuff
If you see her on the dance floor, you’ll never get enough

.Said I’ll miss that woman–she’s sweet as she can be,
She  took  me back to her hotel room and threw away the key.
Said I’ll miss that woman–she’s sweet as she can be,
She  took  me back to her hotel room and threw away the key.

Think I’ll go down to Kansas City–get my hambone boiled
If I hang around here anymore my poor hambone’s gonna spoil–
Goin to Kansas City–Get my hambone boiled–
If I hang around here anymore my poor hambone’s gonna spoil–

Repeat
