So, Still I’m Traveling Along, is one of my my favorite songs to play, but durn if I can figure out the lyrics after the first verse. A friend who is really into 30’s blues can’t get them either. I can’t find them online. Any help would be appreciated

weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/inde...=430.120-

Still I'm Travelling On - Mississippi Sheiks
Actual pitch: E-flat (f)
Main guitar position: E-flat
Fiddle position: E-flat
Mandolin position: n/a
Second guitar position: n/a

Lyrics:
I'm a stranger here, nobody knows my name
Everything that happens they says I'm to blame
But still I'm traveling along, still I'm traveling along
Well, the way may be hard but don't ever give up your load

They done me wrong, talk about me when I'm asleep
Along about day I made my 'fore day creep
I'm just traveling along, I'm just traveling along
Well, the way may be hard but don't ever give up your load

spoken: Oh, step on it

Some of these mornings, I'm going to shout
When your mean ways have done worried out
Then I'll be traveling along, then I'll be traveling along
Well, the way may be hard but don't ever give up your load

spoken: I mean step on it

I went to leave, she put rocks in my road
Doing everything to get me not to go
But still I travel right on, still I travel right on
Well, the way may be hard but don't ever give up your load

spoken: Oh, stomp it
spoken: Uh

It have been days that you were nice and kind
But it seems like now you've left this world behind
That's why I'm traveling along, that's why I'm traveling along
Well, the way may be hard but don't ever give up your load

Thanks so much fiddledawg, after 4 days 100 views and no replies I gave up looking. I play it in D. I love how the Shieks give prominence to the Lonnie Chatmons fiddle, easy to pick out what he’s doing. Thanks again.
