Lyric "Goodbye Red"

Well, goodbye Red
Now, I ain't gon' cry
Now, goodbye Red
Now, I ain't gonna cry
Well now, I ain't gonna frown
I wouldn't tell you no lie

Well, my little Red
She just don't know
Well-a my little Red
She just don't know
Well now, she says she loves me
She's wild about Mr. So and So

Well, I ain't gonna worry
About the way you do
Well, the way you treat me
Comin' back home to you
Well, I ain't gonna worry
Red, about the way you do now

Well, I ain't gonna frown
I ain't gonna make no noise
Now, I ain't gonna frown
I ain't gonna make no noise

Well, I ain't gonna bring
You'll have none-a-these Santa toys

Well, I waved my hand
Red, shook her head
I waved my hand
Red, shook her head
Well, I'm sick an tired of Red
Gonna go to bed

Now tell me, Red
What you want me to do?
Now look-it-here, Red
What you want me to do, now?
Now do you think I can love you
And be yo' little dog, too now?

Well, after a while
Be all over, now
Well, after a while
Be all over, now
Now because didn't have nobody
Raise no sand, now how

Well, fare you well
Well, fare you well
Red, fare you well
Now, little girl
Well now, I thought you loved me
But I take you for my pal

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.
