Married Man Blues

This song is by Blind Willie Reynolds and appears on the compilation When the Levee Breaks: Mississippi Blues, Rare Cuts 1926-41 (2007).

When you lose your money, please don't lose your mind1
When you lose your money, please don't lose your mind
When you lose your woman, please don't fool with mine

Tell you married men, how to keep your wife at home
Tell you married men, how to keep your wife at home
Get you a job, and roll for the man, and try to carry your labor home
Hmm, hmm, try to carry your labor home

Tell you married women, how to keep your husbands at home
Tell you married women, how to keep your husbands at home, hmm hmm hmm
Take care of your husband's labor, and let these single boys alone

Make a single woman crazy about a married man
What make a single woman crazy about a married man
'Cause he works hard all the time, he puts money in her hand

Make a married woman so crazy about a single man, hmm hmm hmm
Make a married woman crazy about a single man
'Cause her husband might lay down and die, and raise that fella to her hand

Let me tell you men what these married women will do
Let me tell you boys what these married women will do
You will get your money, she will catch up to you

If you ask me, ain't gonna tell you nothin' else
If you ask me, ain't gonna tell you nothin' else
Man's a fool if he thinks, got a whole woman to himself
