​Dangerous Blues

This song is by Alice Leslie Carter and appears on the compilation Female Blues Singers Vol. 4 C (1921-1930) (1996).

Ta de da da de dum, Ta de da da de dum
There's a funny strain a-stealing, through mah brain it drives me 'most insane it seems
Ta de da da de dum, Ta de da da de dum
If you'll listen now I'll tell you what this Ta da da de dum-me means

Oh! I got them dangerous blues, naughty dog gone dangerous blues
Can't you hear the music playing soft and sweet
It's the kind that makes you want to shake your feet
I think I'm slippin, I know I'm slippin
Ta de da de, Da de da de, Da de da de dum

Weary dreary, dangerous blues
They're the kind you hate to lose
I can't even think, so lay me out in pink
Ev'ry time that saxophone it moans I want to sink
'Cause I got them dog gone dangerous blues

Oh I got them dog gone dangerous blues
