Me & My Chauffeur Blues
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

One of my favourite singers. Thanks for this.  It's such a clear recording!


The bounce on the backup guitar is what gets me... I can jam along but I can't figure out how to get that bounce

Mark Conlan

The guitarist behind her, billed as "Little Son Joe," is actually Ernest Lawlars, Minnie's second husband.

Mark Mcfail

It's called the bouncing bass, probably 5th and 4th string and then mute them as soon as you hit them

Andy Quinn

Ghost/choke/muffle beats 2 and 4. That puts the accent on those back beats.

M. Nielsen

rêves hit 2 or 3 bass strings and immidiately mute them shortly after. Study Big Bill Broonzy lessons. Daddystovepipe on YouTube has a good video to demonstrate the bass bounce.
