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

Blues artists were absolute MASTERS of the metaphor!

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

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!!

I've been trying to work out some her songs for awhile now....open G tuning I believe. If you want to hear this great stuff being played live, check out Del Rey! She is a smoking hot guitar player!...Im just sayin

That's the risk you run when you're 'Kissing In The Dark'. Too bad. Maybe he learned his lesson and will be more careful in future. Always use a condom. Best wishes Metairie Road

I was watching "Greenleaf" and saw a Memphis Minnie flyer. Decided to find out who she was and here I am.
