Doctor Doctor Blues
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


Doctor stopped me from drinking, boys, I can't smoke no more
Doctor stopped me from drinking, boys, I can't smoke no more
And I can't see no peace, seem like nowhere I go
Oh, doctor, doctor, you know I got a lot of faith in you

Oh, doctor, doctor, you know I got a lot of faith in you
I'd trust you everywhere
But it hurt me so bad, when you say if I took another drink, nothing you could do
Oh, doctor, doctor, I ain't drinked in a great long time
Oh, doctor, doctor, I ain't drinked in a great long time
Bring us half a pint
I'm gonna take a drink of this, if the good Lord don't change my mind
Now, look-a here, doctor, don't you know my mama's done gone blind?

Now, look-a here, doctor, don't you know my mama's done gone blind?
I know her trouble
I was doing the best I could but she wouldn't pay the doctor no mind
Oh, doctor, doctor, tell me what's my trouble now

Oh, doctor, doctor, tell me what's my trouble now
"If you take another drink, I bet they put you in the ground!"
Doctor, you all right with me anyhow

minnie was paid the ultimate compliment by her peers (for the times) they said minnie "played like a man"...

As talented as she was pretty!  When I get started listening to this music, I can't get away from it.

This is real, down-to-earth, gutbucket non-nonsense back to the swamp and thicket blues as only the Great Lady herself can do. Zooowwwie!

Merci, Dorian. This is one hot tune by Minnie. I like the new pic you're using, btw. My wife loves this song now, even though it's the first time she's heard it. Thanks again. :))
