Memphis Minnie Lyrics

Won't you be my chauffeur
Won't you be my chauffeur
I wants him to drive me
I wants him to drive me downtown
Yes he drives so easy, I can't turn him down
But I don't want him
But I don't want him
To be ridin' these girls
To be ridin' these girls around
So I'm gonna steal me a pistol, shoot my chauffeur down
Well I must buy him
Well I must buy him
A brand new V8
A brand new V8 Ford
Then he won't need no passengers, I will be his load
(spoken: Yeah, take it away)
Going to let my chauffeur
Going to let my chauffeur
Drive me around the
Drive me around the world
Then he can be my little boy, yes, I'll be his girl

Somehow blues in modern times became trite and predictable. The blues Memphis Minnie played was vibrant and alive, clever and real. Amazing how much better her music was than that of blues today, and some of her stuff was among the first music ever recorded!

John Smith

Listen to Jimmy and Mama Yancey :)

Ray Massey

This song was written by Minnie and recorded in 1941 as a present for her husband Earnst Lawlars (Little Son Joe). Any similarities are because other artist stoled Minnie's creativity. Another great "cover" is Chuck Berry's "I Want To Be Your Driver"
