Howling Wolf Blues No. 4
Howling Wolf Blues No. 4 - Funny Papa Smith
A position, standard tuning, pitched at Bb
Spoken: Well, it looks like the last of the old Howlin' Wolf
My feet are almost frozen from prowlin' on the frozen ground (x2)
And the she-wolfs got so they don't want me no more 'cus I done prowled my fool self down.
When I first started howlin' all the women fell for my line (x2)
Now they got so they keep me prowlin', hide from me all the time.
When I get hungry I prowl and prowl and don't stay in no one place long (x2)
When I get lonesome I howl and howl all around my she-wolf's home.
They used ta call Wolf in to howl, but they get so now they close their doors (x2)
They found out I don't do nothin' but prowl and they don't want me in no more.
When you hear a strange voice you know it don't mean no one no harm. (x2)
Why I've keep on howlin' 'cus I've been prowlin' so long.
(Now listen) Can't you hear somebody callin' their hounds out with their horn (x2)
Let me get up and get prowlin' 'cus they get on my trail 'fore long.
