Bedside Blues

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

I ain't going to be your lowdown dog no more
And I ain't going to be your lowdown dog no more
I'll get me a good gal most any place I go

And I walked all night long, my feet got soaking wet
Walked all night long, my feet got soaking wet
And I haven't walked up on my good gal yet

Well mama, mama, what's the matter now
Well mama, mama, what's the matter now
Trying to quit your daddy, honey, and you don't know how

I'm going, I'm going, and your crying won't make me stay
I'm going, I'm going, and your crying won't make me stay
Honey, the more you cry, the further I'm going away

I don't like no woman got hair like drops of rain
I don't like no woman got hair like drops of rain
Because the girl I like got hairs like horse's mane

That's what my mother told me just before she died
That's what my mother told me just before she died
Son, your trouble ain't now but it sure be after a while

Well, I fell down on my knees and...
I fell down on my knees and cried
I fell down right by my mama's side

Well, son, son, there's one thing I want you to do
Well, there's one more thing, son, that I want you to do
And then these women sure take care of you
