Pork and Beans - Rosa Lee Hill
« on: August 22, 2011, 09:03:35 PM »
Rosa Lee Hill is now officially my favorite female country blues artist. Has anyone been able to decipher the 1st verse (repeated  2x) in its entirety?

Minnie is still tops for me but Rosa Lee Hill is great. Sounding good, Nate. Re. the verse, I don't hear it all but I get:

Mama's in the kitchen cookin' pork and beans
Said my daddy don't know [if she's runnin?? cypress?? green??]

Stuff in square brackets is mere incoherent approximations of the sounds.

I've always heard this (with an endearing mispronunciation of "submarines"):

"Mama's in the kitchen cookin' pork and beans / Daddy's on the ocean runnin' submarines."

I agree, Jeff, good ear. I hear that now pretty clearly.

Armed with the missing lyrical info,  I think I'm going to tighten this up a bit and repost.

Wow, another submarine reference, added the 'formula' tag to keep it with the others. Or save some time and type 'submarine' into the search box top right.
