Fattening Frogs for Snakes
Sonny Boy Williamson Lyrics


It took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
Took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
(It sho' did man)
But I bet you my bottom dollar, I'm not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes

I found out my downfall, back in nineteen and thirty
(I started checkin')
I found out my downfall, from nineteen and thirty
I'm tellin' all of my friends, I'm not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes
All right now... (solo)
Yeh it is nineteen and fifty-seven, I've got to correct all of my mistakes
Whoa man, nineteen and fifty-seven, I've got to correct all of my mistakes
I'm tellin' my friends includin' my wife and everybody else,
Not fattenin' no more frogs for snakes

One of my favorite examples of the wit, wisdom and crack harmonica blues of Sonny Boy Williamson (II). Even the guitar hook is that mean and hungry snake he warns about. If you're gonna learn something, learn from the very best.

What a song , and what a performer . I purchased this album a long while back , mainly because my dad had it . Ive always loved the old blues style of playing . Been learning harmonica by watching all the great perform , and all the little uploads of lessons on youtube . Ive listed to this track over and over , and My Babe , but i also enjoy playing along to dont start me talking . Pop idle , AGT and all those other plastic pop creations , they really need to check in on the masters before they claim to be musicians or singers .
