Kissing In the Dark
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


Call the doctor, call him quick
I done got something 'bout to make me sick
I been kissin' in the dark
Yeah, kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark, honey, that's my birthmark

Well, I had a girlfriend from Alabam'
She done put her pennies all in a jam
Kissin' in the dark
Yes, kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark, honey, that's her birthmark

She had a date with a scrap, she met a hip cat
And nobody knows where she end up at
She been kissin' in the dark
Yes, kissin' in the dark
She been kissin' in the dark, honey, that's her birthmark

Be a good pal, just swappin' up a dime
You thinkin' about a man, throw it after mine
Kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark, honey, that's my birthmark

Yeah, let's get it now
Solo

Well, you'd better wake up, and try to get wise
Get yourself hip to that old crazy jive
Kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark
Kissin' in the dark, honey, that's my birthmark

I done told you

Memphis Minnie is An AMERICAN MASTER! Her strumming and vocals can not be duplicated. RIP

She is so under-rated.

The rock n' roll originator, Kid Douglas, Memphis Minnie Queen of the Guitar Blues. Many of the bluesmen were reluctant to credit a woman with coming up with so many of the great riffs but a lot of them like Chuck Berry, Jimmy Rogers and T-Bone Walker gave her credit where credit was due. Long live the Queen!!

Written lyrics a bit off

I discovered Memphis Minnie by way of some of the old bluesmen that taught me how to play. I was was 16 in 1970 when i started to learn how to play blues, and fell in with a whole group of real players that taught me all they had. But Memphis Minnie taught me attitude. You ain't got that, you ain't got what it takes to play the blues! She was special!

a century of black music

the undisputed queen of the blues.
