Me and 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

Great song, and the lyrics are so funny, they would have been very racy 70 odd years ago, "I want my chauffeur to ride me around" obviously talking about fucking, unless I've just got a dirty mind and she is just singing about her chauffeur driving her around?

Chris Corbett

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


She sound like Rockabilly Rockers from SUN RECORD !!!!  M.Minnie was the Grand'Ma of Rock n Roll for sure !!!!!

John Johnson

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
