Broke Down Engine   By W. McTell  Public Domain

Feel like a broke down engine
Aint got no driving wheel(repeat)
If you've been down and lonesome
You know how a poor man feels

I've been shooting craps and gambling
Honey and I done got broke(repeat)
I've done pawned my pistol
My best clothes and soul

I went down to my prayin ground
And fell on bended knee(repeat)
I aint cryin for no religion lordy
Gimme back my good gal to me

If you give me back my baby lord
I won't worry you no more(repeat)
Aint gotta put her in my house
Only lead her up to my door
