Corrina, Corrina - Chords, Lyrics and Origins

Origins

Corrina, Corrina is a song with many different versions and it even comes labelled with at least three different names ('Corrina, Corrina', 'Corrine, Corrina' and the closely related 'Alberta, Alberta').  There are a plethora of different verses and several variant tunes.  The version I play is a hotch-potch of favourite verses from a number of the recoded versions set on top of a finger-picking blues guitar pattern that I learned as a teenager.  For more information about the origin of the song, see:

Lyrics

Corrina, Corrina

Where you been so long?

Corrina, Corrina

Where you been so long?

Been worryin' about you baby.

Girl, please come home.

 

Corrina, Corrina

Girl you're on my mind.

Corrina, Corrina

Girl you're on my mind.

Thinkin' about you baby.

I just can't keep from crying.

 

Corrina, Corrina

Where'd you stay last night?

Corrina, Corrina

Where'd you stay last night?

You come home this mornin',

Your clothes don't fit you right.

 

Got a bird that whistles,

I got a bird that sings.

Got a bird that whistles,

I got a bird that sings.

But without Corrina

Life don't mean a thing.
