See See Rider

See See Rider – Ma Rainey






I [A]said see, see, see rider

Oh, see what you have [A7]done

I said [D]see, see, see rider

Oh, [A]see what you have done

Oh girl, you [E]made me love you

Now, now, now your lovin’ man has [A]gone


hear what I say


Well, [A]I’m going away, baby

And I won’t be back to [A7]fall

Well, I’m [D]going away baby

And I [A]won’t be back to fall

And if I [E]find me a good girl

I won’t, I won’t be back at [A]all


I’m gonna buy me a pistol,
just as long as I am tall, Lord, Lord, Lord
Shoot my man, and catch a cannonball
If he won’t have me,
he won’t have no gal at all
See See Rider, where did you stay last night? Lord, Lord, Lord
Your shoes ain’t buttoned and your clothes don’t fit you right
You didn’t come home till the sun was shining bright

Hear what I say, I said

See see rider,

Oh see what you have done

Yeah, yeah,
