I'm still unsure on lots of words. Wait ahwhile for the final draft and 100 % accuracy (if possible with this song).
I think some members here are gonna suggest some changes.

Hi all,
I thought I'd take a shot at Blind Joe Reynolds' "Married Man Blues", which he played like the greater portion of his repertoire out of Vestapol tuning with a slide. I'm not at all sure I have the end of the tagline to the next-to-last verse, or the end of the tagline on the last verse right, and would very much appreciate correction or corroboration. Here is "Married Man Blues":



INTRO SOLO

When you lose your money, please don't lose your mind
When you lose your money, please don't lose your mind
When you lose your woman, please don't fool with mine

Tell you married men, how to keep your wife at home
Tell you married men, how to keep your wife at home
Get you a job, work and roll it for the man, and try to carr' your labor home, mmm-mmm-hmm, try to carr' your labor home

Tell you married women, how to keep your husband at home
Tell you married women, how to keep your husband at home, mmm-mmm-hmm-hmm
Take care of your husband's labor, and let these single boys alone

SOLO

Makes a single woman, crazy about a married man?
What make a single woman, crazy about a married man?
'Cause he works hard all the time, he puts money in her hand

Make a married woman, so crazy about a single man? mmm-mmm-hmm-hmm
Makes a married woman, crazy about a single man?
'Cause her husband might lay down and die, and a-leave that fella to her hand

Let me tell you, men, what these married womens will do
Let me tell you, boys, what these married women will do
You will get your money, she will carr' a cup to you

SOLO

Tell you this, men, ain't gonna tell you nothin' else
Tell you this, men, ain't gon' tell you nothin' else
Man's a fool if he thinks, he got a whole woman by hisself

All best,

Hi John,

I think the very last line is "Man's a fool if he thinks, he got a whole woman by hisself."

Thanks for the suggestions, Harry. I agree that the "y" on the second "carry" should be elided, too. I'm going to stick with "work and roll" earlier in the line, though. I can clearly hear the "rk" preceding "and" and he kind of smears the "wo" in there really quickly. I made the first change. Thanks!

Re Listening again I disagree with "work" (we can all have our opinion) and noticed another word in there. I want to give one suggestion for 6.3 also.

2.3, Get you a job work and roll it for the man

6.3  You will get your money, she will cat-curl up to you

Hi Harry,
I'm keeping "work", but I will add "it" after "roll". I don't hear any "r" sound for "curl", nor do I hear any "l" sound for it, so I'm passing on that suggestion.
