Lonesome Shack Blues
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


Out across the hill, I built a lonesome shack
Out across the hill, I built a lonesome shack
So when my good man quit me, I won't have to beg him back

In the southeast corner, that's where I'll put my cool iron bed
In the southeast corner, that's where I'll put my cool iron bed
So when he puts me out, have some place to lay my head

Found my groceries and my stove, where they are selling cheap
Found my groceries and my stove, where they are selling cheap
So when he stops feeding me, have some place to cook and eat

"All right, play for me now"

Time I get me a sweetheart, and a jellyroll machine
Time I get me a sweetheart, and a jellyroll machine
So when we part, be hard to find a ____ bean
