Milk Cow Blues - Sleepy John Estes
Self-accompanied, with Jab Jones, piano and Yank Rachell, mandolin

Now, asked sweet mama to let me be her kid,
She says I might get buggish, like to keep it hid
Well she looked at me, she begin to smile
Says, "I thought I would use you for my man a while
That's, just don't let my husband catch you there
Now, says, "Just don't let my husband catch you there."

Now, went upstairs to pack my leavin' trunk
I never saw no whiskey the blues done made me sloppy drunk
Say, I never saw no whiskey, blues done made me sloppy drunk
Now, I never saw no whiskey but the blues done made me sloppy drunk


Now, some say the beans, some says it was bean
But it's the slow consumption, killin' you by degrees
Lord, it's a slow consumption, killin' you by degrees
Now, just a slow consumption and it's killin' you by degrees

Sleepy John pronounces "husband", "huzzman" in the first verse and "degrees", "the grees" in the final verse.
