Ability to play the banjo soon places one in a social position to pick and choose from scores of social invitations. Everywhere, the banjoist is assured of a hearty welcome - Anon., from THE BANJO, a 1927 pamphlet published by Gibson Inc

Working on songs/recordings by Washboard Sam, just sharing.

Sophisticated Mama - Washboard Sam
G 12 bar, Capo 3rd fret.

(Intro)
D7              C7              G                G   -   D7

G                G                G                G7
Ahh, Sophisticated Mama, don't turn your noise up at me
C                C7              G                G7
Ahh, Sophisticated Mama, don't turn your noise up at me
D7              C7              G                G   -   D7
Don't try to be richey, you ain?t what you seem to be

You think you know those answers, ain?t got nothing to learn
You think you know those answers, ain?t got nothing to learn
You don't want no man, if he ain?t got money to burn

I?m going to read you mama, tell you what I think of you
I?m going to read you mama, tell you what I think of you
You will do anything, that any other woman will do

(Solo)

You can?t drink nothing, unless it?s champagne and wine
You can?t drink nothing, unless it?s champagne and wine
But you would drink beer and like it, if you was a woman of mine

You like high class restaurants, want steaks every day
You like high class restaurants, want steaks every day
If you belongs to me, you would eat hotdogs any time I said

I?m a barrelhouse man, ain?t got no money to give you
I?m a barrelhouse man, ain?t got no money to give you
Can?t give you nothing but lovin?, and you?ll have to make that do

Washboard Sam & Big Bill Broonzy - All By Myself

Chicago, May 1953

Washboard Sam - Vocals, Washboard
Big Bill Broonzy - Vocals, guitar
Memphis Slim - Piano
Lee Cooper - Guitar
Ernest "Big" Crawford - Bass





I'm on my way around the world
When I get back I'll have diamonds and pearls
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself

Got locked up in jail that's no hanging crime
Now I'm on the farm I'm doing time
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself

I got a wife I got fourteen kids
I ain't ashamed don't try to keep it hid
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself

I got a house full of women they all full of filth
I can take care of them I don't need no help
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself

Oh cross-eyed Sue told old pop-eyed Jim
Call Uncle Sam so's I can take care of them
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself

Now the Jack and the mule running neck to neck
The Jack told the mule I got you son what you bet
All by myself all by myself
I don't need nobody to help me I can do it all by myself
