Bo-Weavil Blues
Ma Rainey Lyrics


Hey, hey, bo-weevil, don't sing them blues no more
Hey, hey, bo-weevil, don't sing them blues no more
Bo-weevil here, bo-weevils everywhere you go

I'm a lone bo-weevil, been out a great long time
I'm a lone bo-weevil, been out a great long time
I'm gonna sing these blues to ease a bo-weevil lonesome mind

I don't want no man to put no sugar in my tea
I don't want no man to put no sugar in my tea
Some of them's so evil, I'm afraid they might poison me

I went downtown and bought me a hat
I brought it back home, I laid it on the shelf
And looked at my bed
I'm getting tired of sleeping by myself

This song got started it all, this was one of the first major Blues hits and Blues gave birth to every major genre today, it sits at the top of the family tree of western music
