Bob Wills – Corrine Corrina, (sometimes “Corrina, Corrina”) is a 12-bar country blues song in the AAB form. “Corrine, Corrina” was first recorded by Bo Carter (Brunswick 7080, December 1928). However, it was not copyrighted until 1932 by Armenter “Bo Carter” Chatmon and his publishers, Mitchell Parish and J. Mayo Williams.
In 1934, Milton Brown and his Musical Brownies recorded the song under the title “Where Have You Been So Long, Corrinne,” as a Western swing dance song. Shortly thereafter, Bob Wills adapted it again as “Corrine, Corrina,” also in the Western swing style. Following his recording with the Texas Playboys (OKeh 06530) on April 15, 1940, the song entered the standard repertoire of all Western swing bands, influencing the adoption of “Corrine, Corrina” by Cajun bands and later by individual country artists.

Bob Wills – Corrine Corrina Lyrics

I love Cor-{
Just a little more
Corrine, Cor-{
Ain’t had no
Corrine, Corrina; Where’d you stay last night?
Corrine, Corrina; Where’d you stay last night?
Came home this mornin’; Sun was shinin’ bright.
Goodbye Corrina; This is fare thee well
Goodbye Corrina; This is fare thee well
When I get back, Babe; Lawd! you never can tell.
I met Corrina; far across the sea
I met Corrina; far across the sea
She didn’t write me no letter; She doesn’t care for me.
I love Corrina; I’ll tell the world I do
Oh, I love Corrina; I’ll tell the world I do
Can’t wait’ll Corrina, says: “I love you too.”
