Dope Head Blues
Victoria Spivey Lyrics


Just give me one more sniff of, another sniff of that dope
Just give me one more sniff of, another sniff of that dope
I'll catch a cow like a cowboy, and throw a bull without a rope

Doggone, I've got more money than Henry Ford or John D. ever had
Doggone, got more money than Henry Ford or John D. ever had
I bit a dog last Monday and forty doggone dogs went mad

Feel like a fighting rooster, feel better than I ever felt
Feel like a fighting rooster, feel better than I ever felt
Got double pneumonia and still I think I got the best health

Say, Sam
Go get my airplane and drive it up to my door
Aw, Sam, go get my airplane and drive it to my door
I think I'll fly to London, these monkey men makes mama sore

The president sent for me, the Prince of Wales is on my trail
The president sent for me, the Prince of Wales is on my trail
They worry me so much, I'll take another sniff and put them both in jail

Played drums on a video with Victoria, Bill Dicey and Louisiana Red back in 1974-5?It was for a Black College but never saw it. Anyone know of this video?

Do It Now! video's yeah!

Lonnie Johnson basically invented lead blues guitar

Trevor Morris

@hixton weasle
Blind Lemon was basically a solo performer so he wouldna have been playing leads in front of other instruments. On the other hand, he was fairly well known and had been playing a good while before he ever started recording.

Anton Mikofsky

No, he invented single-string runs on acoustic guitar. See, also: Scrapper Blackwell (great!!). Compare: jazz guitarists of that era: Charley Christian, Django Reinhardt. Next: go electric.
