Blacksnakin' Jiver-Blind Boy Fuller
Blind Boy Fuller, vocal and guitar in C position, standard tuning

I woke up this early mornin', mama, someone was jiving me, and if you don't want me, mama, drop that jivin' and let me be
I'm gonna wake up some of these mornings, and 't's going to be so, I've got to kill you, mama, 'cause I'm a bad mother-fuyer, don't you know?
REFRAIN: I'd rather be bit by a rattlesnake, baby, then to let you jive poor me

Says, my baby, she went away and she left me, I didn't want her to go, she had the nerve to tell me, said, "I don't want you no more."
"But that's all right now, mama," I said, "that's all right for you. I did everything in the world I could, trying to get along with you."

Said, I bought you all last Summer, I bought you plenty of clothes, and when Winter done come you had put me out in the cold
But you know now, mama, I said, "That ain't no way to do. The same way you jivin' me, someone gonna jive you too."
REFRAIN: I'd rather be bit by a rattlesnake, baby, then to let you jive poor me

Said, I dumped sugar all the Summer, and loaded coal all the Fall, and had to go out on Sunday, mama, in my overalls
You know now, mama, said, "That ain't no way to do. There's a hearse and a undertaker waitin' right there for you."
