Minglewood Blues
Cannon's Jug Stompers Lyrics


Don't you never let one woman rule your mind
Don't you never let one woman rule your mind
Said she keep you worried, troubled all the time

Don't you think your fairer was li'l and cute like mine
Don't you wish your fairer was li'l and cute like mine
She's a mar- She's a married woman,
But she comes to see me all the time

Don't you never let one woman rule your mind
Don't you never let one woman rule your mind
Said she keep you worried, troubled all the time

Well I got a letter mama and you ought to hear it read
Well I got a letter Lord and you ought to hear it read
If you comin' back baby now be on your way

It is arguable that this precedes Rollin and Tumblin, but probably does. The G Dead could not touch this.

I think this does precede Rolling & Tumbling (by Willie Newbern), but I've heard similar songs as far back as 1926... And of course, only some of what was out there being played was recorded. I still really like Newbern's version.

Had to hear where the Dead got their inspiration to cover this one originally sounded like.

The Grateful Dead sang this song throughout much of their 30 year history. Their transformation of this song practically made it an original.

@Bluesmusic Andwhatnot Thanks for the correction, my mistake.

The Dead didn't cover this song. They covered New Minglewood Blues by Noah Lewis's Jug Band - a different song and a (mostly) different band.
