Black Snake Moan
by Blind Lemon Jefferson

I, I ain't got no mama now
I, I ain't got no mama now
She told me late last night, "You don't need no mama no how"
Mmm, mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room
Mmm, mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room
Some pretty mama better come and get this black snake soon
Ohh-oh, that must have been a bed bug, baby a chinch

Can't bite that hard
Ohh-oh, that must have been a bed bug, honey a chinch
can't bite that hard
Ask my sugar for fifty cents, she said "Lemon, ain't a
child in the yard"
Mama, that's all right, mama that's all right for you
Mama, that's all right, mama that's all right for you

Mama, that's all right, most seen all you do
Mmm, mmm, what's the matter now?
Mmm, mmm, honey what's the matter now?
Sugar, what's the matter, don't like no black snake no how
Mmm, mmm, wonder where my black snake gone?
Mmm, mmm, wonder where this black snake gone?
Black snake mama done run my darlin' home

I believe a lot of the "Thumbs Down" here, are from people who judge this music by "today's" standards. When this music was played at its time, it was considered thought provoking and (almost) controversial. I always try to send myself back to those simpler, quieter times to appreciate this wonderful music that much more.

I love this early stuff from when the blues wasn't locked into our familiar 12-bar form.

Anderson Cooper

Dumbest comment on YouTube. This is 12 bar format.

Z Sleazoid

The fuck is a 12 bar form

@Yuri Danylko Barely, Ma Rainey consolidated the 12 bar blues form with her recordings if we are really splitting hairs
