Barrelhouse Woman-Leroy Carr
Leroy Carr, vocal and piano in C, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in A position, standard tuning

My woman’s so lowdown she barrelhouses all the time
My woman’s so lowdown she barrelhouses all the time
She's low and squatty but I love that girl of mine

When she gets up in the morning she starts to drinking her corn
When she gets up in the morning she starts to drinking her corn
Every time I think of that woman I wished I had never been born

She struts around all day she barrelhouses the whole night through
She struts around all day she barrelhouses the whole night through
But when she loves me I forget that I ever was blue (Spoken: Now pick it, Mr. Scrapper!)

GUITAR SOLO (Spoken: You know, I couldn't keep blue, boy, good as I feel. Oh, that barrelhouse gal of mine!)

I wish that I could cure her barrelhousing ways
I wish that I could cure her barrelhousing ways
And if I stay with her I'll barrelhouse some day myself

I love my woman swear that she won't act right
Now I love my woman swear she just won't act just right
Gets her head full of whiskey and wants to start a fight
