Boll Weevil Blues-Ma Rainey
Vocal with small jazz ensemble accompaniment

Hey, hey, boll weevil, don't sing them blues no more
Hey, hey, boll weevil, don't sing them blues no more
Boll Weevil's here, boll weevil's everywhere you go

I'm a long boll weevil, been out a great long time
I'm a long boll weevil, been out a great long time
I'm gonna sing these blues, to ease a boll weevil's lonesome mind

I don't want no man to put no sugar in my tea
I don't want no man to put no sugar in my tea
Some of 'em is so evil, I'm 'fraid he might poison me

Lord, I went downtown, and bought me a hat
I bought it back home and laid it on the shelf
Looked at my bed, I'm gettin' tired, sleepin' by myself
