Please help, who sang these lyrics?
« on: December 28, 2010, 01:43:46 PM »
Hello, I'm trying to find out who sang these lyrics:

Woman I love, dead and in the ground
Woman I hate, I see her every day

I'm not sure about the exact wording, but that should be pretty close. I know that the man who made the recording was on Sun Records and wasn't one of the well-known performers there (from Howlin' Wolf to Doctor Ross or Sleepy John Estes, etc....). I have a fairly decent collection of Sun blues, but I can't figure out which recording those lines came from. Maybe someone can help me? Thank you.

My first post here, by the way. Hello everyone!

Hi mysticeyes,
Welcome to Weenie Campbell.  I can't help you out with this one, I'm afraid, but there are folks here who know the Sun Records catalog very well, I'm sure, who should be able to give you an answer.
All best,
Johnm

Not an exact match, but in 'I Will Turn Your Money Green', Furry Lewis sang:

Woman I hate, I see her every day
Woman I hate, I see her every day
But the woman I love, she's so far away.
