Jim Jackson Lyrics

<< < (18/18)

Johnm:
I don't know, Tonybluesboy--what you suggest doesn't match either the phonetics or the number of syllables that Jim Jackson sang there. I think the solution remains to be found.
All best,
Johnm

Tonybluesboy:
Jim Jackson - Mean Woman Blues
I hear the third verse as
I've got eleven dollars and fifty . . . CENT
For anyone to tell me WHERE SUZIE WENT
(Probably Cent rather than Cents because he is accurate with his rhymed endings, albeit with the use of worl' & mo', etc)
All the best
Tony

Johnm:
Hi Tonybluesboy,
Good catch on "where Suzie went", and I will make the change. I listened several times and your can hear the "s" on "cents" so I'll leave that.
All best,
Johnm

--- Quote from: Tonybluesboy on September 18, 2021, 01:36:06 PM ---Jim Jackson - Santa Fe Blues
I hear the final bit as - She's got her hair tied up and HER HAT TURNED upside down.
(Peetie Wheatstraw "Went downtown this mornin' - My hat on upside down" in Crazy With The Blues)
All the best
Tony


--- End quote ---


I got to agree with Tony with one small difference;

She's got her hair tied up and the hat turned upside down.

Johnm:
I'm finally hearing it, Harry and Tonybluesboy. I think you had it, Harry, except I think it is "hat's turned upside down" rather than "hat". I will make the change.
All best,
Johnm
