Lonesome Shack Blues

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order 1935-1941, Volume 5 (1991).

Out across the hill, I built a lonesome shack
Out across the hill, I built a lonesome shack
So when my good man quit me, I won't have to beg him back

In the southeast corner, that's where I'll put my cool iron bed
In the southeast corner, that's where I'll put my cool iron bed
So when he puts me out, have some place to lay my head

Found my groceries and my stove, where they are selling cheap
Found my groceries and my stove, where they are selling cheap
So when he stops feeding me, have some place to cook and eat

All right, play for me now

Time I get me a sweetheart, and a jellyroll machine
Time I get me a sweetheart, and a jellyroll machine
So when we part, be hard to find a ____ bean
