Old Blues by unknown writer and recording artist. Do you know who it was?

Tell me, baby. What's on your mind?
You don't do nothin' but keep me crying.
Thing about you babe, you can be so nice and sweet.
But you laugh and you grin with every man you meet.

What goes up, must come down.
Seen you last night, you was cruisin town.
Tell me, baby, what's on your mind?
And if you don't want me, please don't waste my time.

Told you once, ain't tellin' you no more.
If you don't want me, just tell me so.
I can't stand being dogged around.
Because you laugh and you grin with every man in town.

Dry your eyes, crying won't make me stay.
Aligator tears just drive me away.
I can't stand being dogged around.
Because you laugh and you grin with every man in town.

I did some searching and only one hit .....your video Uncle! I’d claim it if I were you. Nice black and white feel to the video. There would be no blues without complicated women. Your in great form in your new digs!

To Be Cannibalized: 1976 Ovation 1132-1

This is an old Ovation that got wrecked by the ravages of time, string tension and suboptimal storage conditions. At the very least I’m going to use the tune...
