DEATH LETTER BLUES (Ida Cox) Ida Cox recorded 1924 I received a letter that mt man was dyin', I received a letter that mt man was dyin', I caught the first 'plane and went back home flyin'! He wasn't dead but he was slowly dyin', He wasn't dead but he was slowly dyin', And to think of him, I just can't keep from cryin'! I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground, I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground, I watched the pallbearers slowly let him down. That was the last time I saw my daddy's face, That was the last time I saw my daddy's face, Mama love you sweet papa, but I just can't take your place!
