Seven Sisters Blues Part 1 - Funny Papa Smith
A position, standard tuning, pitched at A#
They tell me Seven Sisters in New Orleans, that can really fix a man up right (x2)
And I'm headed for New Orleans, Louisiana, I'm travelin' both day and night.
I hear them say the oldest Sister look just like she's 21 (x2)
And said she can look right in your eyes and tell you just exactly what you want done.
They tell me they've been hung, been bled, and been crucified (x2)
But I just want enough help to stand on the water and rule the tide.
It's bound to be Seven Sisters, ('cause) I've heard it by everybody else (x2)
Course, I'd love to take their word, but I'd rather go and see for myself.
When I leave the Seven Sisters, I'll pile stones all around (x2)
And go to my baby and tell her, "There's another Seven Sister man in town."
Good morning, Seven Sisters, just thought I'd come down and see(x2)
Will you build me up where I'm torn down, and make me strong where I'm weak?
I went to New Orleans, Lou'siana, just on account of something I heard
I went to New Orleans, in Lou'siana, just on account of something I heard
The Seven Sisters told me everything I wanted to know, and they wouldn't let me speak a word.
Now, it's Sarah, Minnie, Bertha, Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
Sarah, Minnie, Berthat, Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
You can't know them sisters apart, because they all looks just the same.
The Seven Sisters sent me away happy, 'round the corner I met another little girl
Seven Sisters sent me away happy, 'round the corner I met another little girl
She looked at me and smiled, and said, "Go, Devil, and destroy the world."
SOLO (Spoken, during solo: I'm gonna destroy it, too. I'm all right now.
Seven times a year the Seven Sisters will visit me in my sleep
Seven times a year the Seven Sisters will visit me all in my sleep
And they said I won't have no more trouble, and said I'll live twelve days in a week.
Wanna go down in Lou'siana, and get the hell right out of your bein'
Wanna go down in Lou'siana, and get that hell out of your bein'
It's Seven Sisters can do anything in Lou'siana, but you'll have to go to New Orleans.
