Lyric "My Little Cornelius"

Special deliver man, special deliver man
Please take this letter down to Brownville for me
Special deliver man, special deliver Man
Please take this letter down to Brownville, for me
Now that you can tell Miss Cornelius, I'm up here in Chicago
Oh, but I'm just as blue as I can be

Special deliver man, she may not be at home
Not but you need to worry about knockin' on her door
Special deliver man, she may not be home

Not but you need to worry about knockin' on her door
Now but you could just take it back to the office
Beause Miss Cornelia goes to school, you know

Now give me, 9-0-9
I want to use your line a while
Now, give me, 9-0-9
Lord, I want to use your line a while
Now that I want to talk with Miss Cornelia Burns
Because she just my little angel child

Now special deliver man, after you've done what I told
Lord, then I want you to ride away
Special deliver man, after you've done what I've told you
Lord, an I want you to ride away
Now, that's the reason you hear me sing the blues
About my little Cornelia Burns, ev'ryday

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.
