"Leaving Gal Blues" mistitled?

I just listened to "Leaving Gal Blues" (Blind Blake on guitar and Bertha Henderson on vocals), and for the first time thought that it really sounds like she says "Dying with the leaving HERE blues", not "Dying with the leaving GAL blues", which I'd always thought was the line. If she's saying "leaving HERE", then the song probably should have been called "Leaving Here Blues", not "Leaving Gal Blues". What do you think?
