Country Blues Lyrics / Monster Mike Welch Lyrics
« Last post by harry on August 05, 2020, 07:41:13 AM »
Not exactly country blues but I need help with the question mark.
I'll take it off if it's not allowed.


Just Like A Fool – Monster Mike Welch 




Sometimes I feel……sometimes I feel just like a fool
Sometimes I feel……sometimes I feel just like a fool
For grinnin’ like an idiot while you do the things you do

I told my friends to leave me when I tell them what we have
When I say I love you why do people start to laugh
Whoohooo sometimes I feel just like a fool
For grinnin’ like an idiot while you do the things you do

Solos

Well I hear the gears are turning as you plan you’re little schemes
You know that I won’t say a word I’m living in a dream
Whoohooo sometimes I feel just like a fool
For grinnin’ like an idiot while you do the things you do

For grinnin’ like an idiot while you do the things you do

For grinnin’ like an idiot while you do the things you do

Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Blind Boy Fuller Lyrics
« Last post by Johnm on August 04, 2020, 05:27:18 PM »
Hi all,
Blind Boy Fuller was joined by Sonny Terry on harmonica and Bull City Red on washboard for "Somebody's Been Talkin'", an up-tempo 8-bar blues for which Fuller accompanied himself out of A position in standard tuning. This is a hugely exciting cut, and I don't think Sonny Terry ever sounded better than he does on this cut--he's completely locked in with Fuller's vocal and responding to everything Fuller does, as well as playing time like a really energetic and inventive drummer.  Fuller sounds completely happy and confident in his vocal, too.  This is the kind of take you always hope you'll get in the studio but so seldom do.  Here is "Somebody's Been Talkin'":



INTRO SOLO

Well-ell, well-ell, well, aw, pshaw!
Mmm, yeah, Lordy, Lordy, Lord

I hate to see that rising sun go down
It make me believe my woman's got me on my last go-round

She used to be mine, but look who's got her now
She didn't mean me no good, God knows I couldn't keep her, nohow

Well-ell, yeah-eah, well-ll, pshaw!
Mmm, Lord, Lordy, Lordy, Lord

Say, tell me, mama, who in the world been tellin' you?
You don't even treat me nothing like you used to do

Well-hell, yeah-eah, mmmm-hmm
Well, yes, Lordy, Lordy, Lord

Says it may be a week, and it could be a month or two
'Cause when I get lucky, gal, I'm comin' right back to you

Say the woman, I love, she rolls all over the bed
She got the kind of lovin' make me talk out of my head

Whoa-ho, yeah-eah, ohhhhhh, pshaw!
Mmm, yes, Lordy, Lordy, Lord

She got coal-black eyes, she got long, black curly hair
My baby got something will lead me most anywhere (Sonny: Whoa!) (Fuller, spoken: Play it for me now!)

Whoa-ho, yeah-eah, mmmm-hmm
Mmm, yeah, Lordy, Lordy, Lord

SOLO

I hate to see that rising sun go down
'Cause I got the notion my woman's gone and left this town

Ah-ha, yeah-eah, welll-ll, pshaw!
Mmm, yeah, my woman's gone and left this town

CODA

All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I believe that when Cecil Barfield was first recorded, he gave his name as William Robertson.

Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Blind Boy Fuller Lyrics
« Last post by Johnm on August 04, 2020, 11:32:29 AM »
Hi all,
Blind Boy Fuller recorded "Big Leg Woman Gets My Pay" at a session in Memphis on July 12, 1939, accompanying himself out of E position in standard tuning and joined by Bull City Red (Oh Red) on washboard. It is a sensational performance, and a very unusual East Coast blues in that it never goes to a V7 chord. In some ways, it is more like a Mississippi blues. Fuller's intro solo is just ripping--wow! And his even-numbered verses, where he perseverates in his E chord down at the base of the neck are just rhythm-athons with Bull City Red clicking away on the washboard.  As far as I'm concerned, this is "die-happy" stuff. Here is "Big Leg Woman Gets My Pay":



INTRO SOLO

My hook's in the water and my cork's on top
My hook's in the water and my cork's on top
How in the world can I lose, yeah, with the help I've got?

Lord-Lord, Lord-Lord
Yeah-ha, yeah-ha, pshaw!
Whoa-ho, yeah, Lord, Lord

Reason why, these men, whoa-ho, don't draw no pay
Why-y, they sure don't draw no pay
Tell me why these men, they sure don't draw no pay
Let these big leg woman come and take thei' pay away

Yes, they do, Lord-Lord, Lord-Lord
Well-hell, well Lord, pshaw!
Hey-ey-ey, come and draw thei' pay away

Better stop your woman from grinnin' in my face
Better stop your woman from grinnin' in my face
Wake up some of these mornin's, babe's got up, he done took your place

Yes, I will, Lord-Lord (Yeah!), Lord-Lord
Well-hell, well Lord, pshaw!
Wake up some of these mornin's, boy, he done took your place

May be your woman, but she come to see me sometimes
May be your woman, but she come to see me sometimes
Be 'round me so often, I begin to think she's mine

Yes, I do, Lord-Lord, Lord-Lord, (Yeah!) Lord-Lord, Lord-Lord
Lord-Lord, Lord-Lord, pshaw!
Say, Lord-Lord, Lordy-Lord, Lord

All best,
Johnm

Ed Bell:

  Ed Bell for Paramount and his final Columbia session
  Sluefoot Joe for QRS
  Barefoot Bill for his first 2 Columbia sessions, and possibly for Paramount session for which the issued record has never been found.

Charlie Jordan was Uncle Skipper for an unissued Decca session in 1935 and for his final Decca session in 1937.

These Harry Smith B side compilations have been floating around for awhile, but not in commercial form.  I see they omitted the songs that have racist lyrics.  While I understand why they did this -- nobody wants to hear the N word --  it's too bad in a way.  One of those songs is the Henhouse Blues by the Bentley Boys -- for me, it resonates quite a bit with our modern times.  It tells the story of a dream:  a black man dreams he is running for president, but is woken up with the news that "you am beat and a WOMAN am President". The gist of it is, what could be even worse than a black president?  A woman President!  And here it is more than 90 years later and we've actually had a Black president, but not a woman yet.  I wish that would happen in my lifetime.  Anyway it sounds like a wonderful set.

Yes, thanks for posting that, Lew. What a great concept!  And to my tastes, the program doesn't suffer by comparison to the original Anthology of American Folk Music's program. I guess I can see why they omitted the tracks with racist language, but it seems like you need to acknowledge the bad along with the good in a country's history. Hiding from that past doesn't make it any less true.

Thanks for the heads up, Lew. I see it contains, “Moonshiner's Dance Part Two,” by Frank Cloutier and the Victoria Cafe Orchestra --something I've been waiting half a century for.
