Now some people don't understand. They think a blues player has to be worried, troubled to sing the blues. That's wrong. I'll put it this way; there's a doctor, he has medicine. He's never, sick, he ain't sick, but he has stuff for the sick people. So the blues player, he ain't worried and bothered, but he's got something for the worried people. Doctor . . . you can see his medicine, you can see his patient. Blues . . . you can't see the music you can't see the patient because it's soul. So I works on the soul, and the doctor works on the body - Roosevelt Sykes, spoken on Smithsonian/Folkways Classic Blues anthology

Robert Belfour Lyrics
« on: November 26, 2022, 09:54:01 AM »
Hi all,
Robert Belfour recorded "Black Mattie" for his first Fat Possum album, "What's Wrong With You", accompanying himself out of Spanish tuning. This is such a strong rendition, and the number of variations that Robert Belfour was able to come up with for his main melodic idea is kind of staggering.. Here is "Black Mattie":



INTRO

Oh black Mattie, girl ain't got a change in clothes
Oh black Mattie, girl ain't got a change in clothes
Love that woman, anywhere I go

INTERLUDE

Oh black Mattie, fool ain't got a change in clothes
Girl got mad at me, throwed all of my clothes outdoors
Love that woman, anywhere I go

INTERLUDE

I work seven days a week, still can't make ends meet
I work seven days a week, still can't make ends meet
She says she love me, tellin' me, "Don't go."
Girl throwed all of my clothes outdoors
Love that woman, anywhere I go
Love that woman, anywhere I go

INTERLUDE

Love that woman, anywhere I go

CODA

All best,
Johnm
