B Street Blues / Car Won’t Go

Set a Spell

By NP Tiedemann
   

Ain’t got no bread; ain’t got no wine
Feels like I’m settin’ here just doin’ time
Wonder why I don’t do so well
Guess I’ll just stay here and Set a Spell
(mumbled) I do my best thinkin’ when I just Set a Spell

Carpetbagger man come into town
Got some elixir so smooth goin’ down
Fix what ails you I just can’t tell
Guess I’ll just stay here and Set a Spell

Ain’t got nothin’ not one thin dime
Feels like I’m just bout outta time
Got no vittles got no dinner bell
Guess I’ll just stay here and Set a Spell

Harmonica instrumental section

Ain’t got no future just got a past
World spinnin’ by way too fast
Headed for heaven I just can’t tell
Guess I’ll just stay here and Set a Spell
(mumbled) I hope the Almighty come fetch me home

Done had these blues forever now
40 years we lost that milkin’ cow
Can’t figure if it started all this hell
Guess I’ll just stay here and set a spell
