I’m gonna be your Santa Claus even if my whiskers ain’t white

Christmas Eve Blues
performed by Blind Lemon Jefferson (1928)

Oh Mama! This is goin’ to be a hard winter.
Look at how it snowin’. Baby won’t you hear me moan.

Now it’s the day before Christmas
Mama won’t you hear me moan

Now it’s the day before Christmas
Mama won’t you hear me moan

If you take me back, baby
I’ll get you anything you need

I had a good chance,
Baby give me just one more

I had a good chance
Baby give me just one more

I will change the way I’m loving, like you never have been before

I know I did do wrong, I’m just as sorry as I can be
Sorry as I can be

It’s the day before Christmas,
Mama please come back to me

Mama don’t turn me down on this Christmas Eve
Mama don’t turn me down on this Christmas Eve
I cried about you so hard done wetted my whole coat sleeve

It’s the day before Christmas, Let me bring your present tonight
It’s the day before Christmas, Let me bring me your present tonight

I’m going to be your Santa Claus even if my whiskers ain’t white

Christmas Eve Blues, fool
