Lyric "Collector Man Blues"

(Spoken)
Who is that knockin' on that do'?
I believe that, that's collector man
Man, go tell him I ain't got a dime, t'day
Tell him I ain't made a penny all this week
Tell him I'm just as broke as I can be
Or just knock 'em down
Tell him but I have some money, sometime

(Singing)
Now go open the door
Here come that collector man
Go open the door

Here come that collector man
Well, you can tell him I say, 'Come back tomorrow
Because Sonny Boy, ain't got a doggone thing'

Tell him that I ain't got no money
Now, he know how times is now day
Tell him that I ain't got no money
And he know how times is now day
Well, this elevator man ain't got no money
Can't hardly find any place to stay

Tell him but someday, I'll have some money
Now, I want ev'rybody to watch and see
Tell him someday I'll have some money
I want ev'rybody to watch and see
Well now, tell him that it's hard to keep down
You know, a real good man like me

Tell him, I know I'm down, now
Now, but I won't be down, alway
Tell him that I'm down, now
But I won't be down, alway
Well now, you can tell 'em watch an see
Don't Sonny Boy, get some money
Ooh Lord, knows some of these days

Sonny Boy Williamson

Alex or Aleck Miller (né Ford, possibly December 5, 1912– May 24, 1965),[4] known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter.[5] He was an early and influential blues harp stylist who recorded successfully in the 1950s and 1960s. Miller used various names, including Rice Miller and Little Boy Blue, before calling himself Sonny Boy Williamson, which was also the name of a popular Chicago blues singer and harmonica player. To distinguish the two, Miller has been referred to as Sonny Boy Williamson II.
